Theater of the Russian Army
Another amazing building in Moscow is the Theater of the Russian Army.

The building of the Theater of the Soviet Army was built in the years 1934-1940 in the form of a five-pointed star. It symbolizes the unity of the world proletariat of all five continents.

However, the shape of the building played a cruel joke with it: during the Great Patriotic War, German pilots used the theater of the Soviet army as a reference point, because its four beams pointed to Moscow railway stations, and the fifth pointed to the Kremlin.

Therefore, the architects were almost accused of betrayal, and the building was masked: villages, churches and groves appeared on the site of the theater.

The Red (since 1951 - Soviet, from 1993 - Russian) army Theater has the largest stage in Europe.

The building occupies 10 floors on the surface (of which six are the Big Stage with 1,520 seats, 2 floors - the Small Stage with 450 seats) and 10 underground floors. The stage of the theater is adapted to show massive battle scenes with the participation of real tanks.

At the moment, the theater still works and shows a variety of performances
