"A building of Fear" KGB Headquarters Lubyanka Tip by morgenhund

KGB Headquarters Lubyanka, Moscow: 30 reviews and 40 photos


The ex KGB building at Lubjanka is still the home of the organisation that succeeded the KGB, a move which sparked a lot of controversy. Due to its notoriety, there is still a constant stream of visitors to see the facade of the building, although there is no way of entering the building for tourists. It has become a monument unwittingly, representing the oppression and brutality of the KGB regime from the Soviet era. Worth doing en route somewhere else but not really a sight of merit in its own right otherwise.
