There’re some significant places on the city map. For me this is first of all Kirov Palace of Culture.

The building resembles a giant ship, nowadays, unfortunately, it’s more like the one that ran aground. It used to as if sail across the altitude of the Smolensky field. But nowadays it’s really worn itself, and all is surrounded and pressed by the new high rises with their plenty of glass, cement and modern eclecticism. The house was built in 1930s (by the architects N. Trotsky and S. Kozak), and then became the biggest cultural centre of Leningrad.

It was laid in 1930, and the first part was finished in 1935. The voskresniks (volunteer work sessions) organized by the workers assisted the building process a lot. There helped the workers from Baltic Factory, ‘Sevkabel” (Northern Cable), “Red Nailer” (“Krasny Gvozdil’shcik”), “Pneumatics”, “Electroapparat” factories, the University and Gorinstitute (Geological institute) students, so, it can be called the common building. It was called “the building of Dnepr of the cultural building” (comparing with the construction of the number of hydroelectric power stations on the Dnepr river in the Ukrainian SSR) by the newspaper “Leningradskaya Pravda” (“Leningrad Truth”).

The Culture Palace has been built in constructivism style with the elements of neoclassicism. There wasn’t realized everything from the architects’ plan (they didn’t build the Big theatre hall and the Western phase). There was also the observatory on the project, but I can’t find anywhere whether it existed or not. Lots of people remember with gratitude the cinema of Gosfilmofond (State Fond of the Films) “Kinematograf” (1967 - mid 1980s). Only here it was possible to see the masterpieces of the world cinema. Later on “Spartak” cinema got the similar function. more (490 symbols) >>

— Прочитала про дворец Кирова, думаю, а есть ли сейчас в Петербурге что-то, что с полным правом можно назвать "очагом культуры" - таким, каким был этот Дворец культуры в 60-е - 70-е годы для ленинградцев. Сейчас очагов культуры стало больше, но они более специализированные что ли.
