Rubizhne Off The Beaten Path: 52 reviews and 260 photos
You can see a number of Stalin era apartment houses in Lenin Street
opposite School #6 in the area of Lenin monument.
This part of the city was built in the fifties.
In 1955 Khrushchov's government adopted a decree on struggle against “architectural excesses”.
Stalin era designing and architecture were declared as wasteful and extravagant.
The Resolution No.1871 of the Communist Party Central Committee and the USSR Cabinet of Ministers “On elimination of excesses in designing and construction” dated November 4, 1955 declared all architectural masterpieces of Stalin era as extravagant and wasteful and blamed the architects for their approach.
The afterwar Empire Style was banned and the architects started building "boxes" instead of original and inimitable houses.
"Democratic" Nikita Khrushchov regarded Stalin era construction extravagance as out of place and lacking economic discipline.
