When you think of a Soviet building you most likely think of a boring house which doesn't worth the name "architecture". The tour will show you it is totally untrue. Very advanced ideas of world architecture development in 1920s and monumental buildings in Stalins style are very different and definitely worth attention. These were not just separate buildings but very ambitious social projects, they were designed to change peoples life in the new Soviet state. Ornate subway system is a good addition to it.
