The Liublino ensemble that has by a miracle survived to our days occupies a peculiar place in Russian culture. The architectural planning of the palace, a combination of the cross and the circle, is unusual for Moscow and Moscow region and makes it kin to the projects of Jean-Francois Neufforges, a XVIII century French architect. A later legend explains such non-standard planning of the building by its resemblance to the Order of St. Anna. The main entrance to the palace is located on its south-eastern side. The paintings were made by G. Scotti, a popular artist of the time.
The nowadays life of Liublino complies with the traditions of the past. As a long time ago, classical music and poetry can be heard in the palace; the halls often become concert venues. Exhibitions are located on the attic storey while permanent expositions have found their place in the halls.
