Former KGB building

Former KGB building

No visit to Moscow would be complete without a quick visit to what was, for much of the 20th century, the most notorious building in the world. The bland, bulky sandstone building was originally built as the headquarters of an insurance company in 1897. However, after the revolution it became the headquarters of the KGB, and the epicentre of that nefarious organisation's reign of terror over the city during Stalin's time. There are headquarters of FSB (Federal Secure Service) inside this building nowadays.

Arthur did a fantastic job for us. We had 12 hours in Moscow, six of which were committed to seeing our son's concert...so Arthur had less than six hours to show us Moscow. And he did a fine job of it. We had some wild drivers in Russia. Arthur was not one of them. He was safe and sane on the road. Arthur went the extra mile at each opportunity, from picking us up on the platform when we arrived at the train station, to escorting us to our cabin and making sure the steward had our dinner order on our departing train. Great service, good humor, a torrent of facts and figures about everything we saw, there is no way we could have gotten more out of our time in Moscow. Highly recommended!
