"KGB Headquarters" KGB Headquarters Lubyanka Tip by el_ruso

KGB Headquarters Lubyanka, Moscow: 30 reviews and 40 photos


Since 1917 this area was home to the state secret police, KGB. There were plans to move it to a new building after the war, but it remained on this site. If you are particularly interested, there is a way to arrange a guided tour, inquire at your hotel. In front of the building stood a large statue of Dzerzinsky, the founder of the organization. And on the other side of the square there is a modest memorial to innocent victims of secret police which arrested, jailed and executed scores of innocent people during the regime of Stalin.
