White Square Office Center

White Square Office Center is a very attractive place in Moscow. It seems like you are somewhere in Western Europe, because many of famous companies, such as PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte & Touche, McKinsey, Microsoft, Swedbank, rent office blocks of different area here. Originally, the square was located near the Byelorussian railway station, but it was totally replanned in 1936 and the triumphal arch, which had lasted more than 100 years there, was demolished. It was restored only in 1966-1968, but in another place - on Kutuzovsky Avenue not far from the museum "Battle of Borodino". The only extant column of the arch was used to found 12 columns for the new one at Mytishinsky foundry.


At the square, there is a very nice Old Believers' church built at the beginning of the 20th century. It looks unusually among the modern buildings of the square - a unique combination of modern and classic architecture in Moscow.

Address: 5, Lesnaya Street, near the metro station "Byelorusskaya".
