This room is also famous for its unusual acoustics, if you whisper something while standing facing the wall, the phrase will not only be heard by everyone present, but it also appears that someone whispers your own words in your ear. During the Soviet era, the regulars of the Rotonda became select society of the rock-and-roll elite of SPb. Kinchev, Tsoy, and Butusov. Also visited this place.
