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.

We used Arthur for professional and business interpretation - but his abilities as a driver and as a photographer added lustre to his overall support.
Arthur really has a good command of the English language and dealt with many technical and business discussions with ease. His ability to navigate Moscow and get us to appointments on time was most impressive but it was the small things like his reliability, his obvious integrity, his good sense that made his contribution to our visit so marked. We didn't have to attempt to read Cyrillic signs for the Metro, or restaurants or streets , Arthur was completely in control of our movement through Moscow. He really was a marvel and we can't recommend him too highly. A nice man and a most professional individual.
