Moika Embankment

The plaque on the facade indicates that from March 5 to July 5, 1917, the editorial office of the Bolshevist newspaper Pravda was housed in this building.
On April 4, 1917, the day after his return to Petersburg from exile, V. I. Lenin called at the editorial office. From that day right up to July he worked here almost every day. As Editor-in-Chief V. I. Lenin wrote articles, presided at the sittings of the editorial board, took part in selecting material and planning the issues of the newspaper, talked to the workers, soldiers and peasants who used to come to the editorial office. At that period V. I. Lenin wrote over 125 articles for the Pravda.
