A lot of famous architects took part in the construction of the clinical campus: R.I. Klein, A.F.Meisner, M.I.Nikiforov, but the main role belongs to the university architect K.M. Bykovsky. Almost all of its buildings were built in the style of the Italian Renaissance, but everywhere the nature of the institutions located in them was taken into account. You will learn about outstanding personalities and important names in the history of medicine.

From the tour you will also learn:

  • how was created the clinical town, which became the center of the Russian medical school;
