15 Architecture Monuments Destroyed in Moscow in 2014

In 2014 the capital of Russia has lost over 15 architectural monuments of history and culture.

      According to city defenders, namely the community coalition In Defense of Moscow, more than 15 pre-revolutionary houses were destroyed or partially destroyed in Moscow due to investors who carried out their reconstruction. Among the lost architecture monuments there was Sokolov's Mansion of the 19th century, the Proshins’ House in Tverskaya-Yamskaya Street, and the lawyer Romanov’s wooden house of the 19th century.

      One of the most scandalous cases was demolition of the profitable the Proshins’ Guest House in the centre of Old Moscow. In August, 2014 the builder company totally demolished the unique architecture monument that was one-of-a-kind in Moscow. The company planned to build a hotel in its place.
