One of the bad things about not living in the capital is that we don't have embassies... Although my city has some very nice consulates, like the Portuguese Consulate:

Embassy of Belarus in Moscow

Former Rumyantsev house / 17 Maroseika St. / 1782, 1880 / architect: G.A. Kaiser


Photo from wikipedia.

Actually most of the embassies, consulates and other diplomatic missions in Moscow located in old mansions in the city center. If someone post all of them it will be almost the guide "the best of the Moscow historical mansions"

Canada House is a sort of annex to the Canadian High Commission (not Embassy!), which has its chancery in Grosvenor Square. There are plans to consolidate operations in Canada House in future, I believe. This is the Canadian High Commission in London:
