Description of the House of Unions

House of Unions was constructed in the early 1780's under supervision of architect Matvey Kazakov. It became famous as a historic place where Russian Emperor Alexander II proclaimed emancipation of serfs in 1861. House of Unions was taken by unions after the Soviet Revolution, hence the name. It 1924 Vladimir Lenin's body was put here on display before moving to Mausoleum on the Red Square. In 1953 the same ritual was performed for newly deceased Joseph Stalin.
