Drama Theater in Mariupol. The house is built of Crimean inkerman gray stone in the style of monumental classicism with a huge number of stucco decorated components. On the facade of the building there is a sculptural composition, where the main role is given to metallurgists and farmers as the main professions of the Azov region, to whom the patrons of art perform a laudatory ode. As a result of the bombing the theater was destroyed on 17th March 2022.
In 1941, the building housed a military hospital. While retreating from the city, the fascists burned the building of the former male gymnasium along with other houses. All that remained of it - burnt brick walls - was transferred to the industrial technical school. Reconstruction work was completed in 1952.
The construction of this building was completed in 1897. Initially, there was a hotel "Continental" and a merchant meeting hall. Later, the house was significantly rebuilt and expanded. A hall for spectators, two lobbies and technical premises were completed.
