The "Rostov House" is based on the mansion at 53 Povarskaya Street. Dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, it is now an architectural monument of the Muscovite Classicism style.

Leo Tolstoy’s novel “War and Peace” is set in two Russian cities, Moscow and St Petersburg. RIA Novosti's project www.riarealty.ru offers a tour of the Moscow sites where Tolstoy's characters dwelled.
