House With A Unicorn – “Master & Margarita” spot

If you dream of meeting a unicorn, you should definitely visit this spot. Of course, this unicorn is not alive and is made of stone, but the building decorated with it is surrounded by legend.

The building was constructed as a profitable house in 1897 in the style of Gothic Revival architecture and shows all common elements of the Neo-Gothic style. Though the figure of the unicorn was only added during the reconstruction in 2005, it fits perfectly with the whole building.

What is more interesting, this house appears as the gothic mansion of Margarita, the main character of the novel “The Master and Margarita” by Mikhail Bulgakov. The writer lived across the street while he was working on the novel and, apparently, the house with a unicorn in Neo-Gothic style inspired him.

I believe that lovers of “The Master and Margarita”, which includes myself, should visit this place, and if someone told me that unicorns do not exist, I would definitely show them this spot.
