Café Moskau, the symbol of brotherhood between DDR and Soviet Union. 👨❤️💋👨 It’s Thrusday, that means great time to revive some of my favourite places and elaborate about it’s history a little in Thursday throw back style. 🙌 . . .
This cool building was designed by architect Josef Kaiser in 1964 and it become the centre of the first residential complex at Karl-Marx Allee (formerly named Stalinallee). 🙌 For the first privilege guests there were available Russian dishes, fancy coffee and nigh bar in the basement and even souvenirs from soviet shop called “Natascha”. Apparently the place was also popular meeting place for blackmarket and spying activities. On the top corner, there is a original size replica of the Sputnik satellite … which look strangely weird and cool. 🤔 At the first look, the Sputnik there looks like way too much, but in fact, the satellite was a big deal, I mean, look back at the whole Elon Musk Tesla car in space extravaganza … 😂 . . .
The café was restored into it’s original 1960s style, become a culture heritage building and it still function. The building is quite amazing and bizarre piece of DDR hypocrisy, it’s definitely worth to visit the area, it’s really close to Alexanderplatz. 😊 . . .
Так вышло, что в этот раз я успела погулять только по жилым кварталам Берлина. Но как же они хороши и гармоничны! Чистые линии, координация сложных оттенков, граффити, как акцент, все логично и продумано. Чувствуется влияние мировых школ дизайна 👌. #berlinarchitecture#modernarchitecture#bauhaus
The Berlin Wall and behind the wall: The Detlev Rohwedder House.
From 1990 the Berlin branch office of the German Finance Ministry was located here, and since 1999, following a vast refurbishment, the building has served as the Ministry's headquarters.
