When in Ivanovo, do not forget to visit one of the most special houses. It was built in the Soviet times, in 1934. Its shape resembles the silhouette of a ship. The five-storey building is constructed in the form of a ship. Its bow is simulated by the beveled side and the stern – by the eight-level tower on the opposite side. The two rows of balconies remind the deck and small balconies with concrete railings look like bridges. The ground floor is made of glass, so the house “floats” above the ground.
