Regional Government Building (until 1991 - the House of Soviets) is a 24-storey high-rise building on Oktyabrskaya Square in Yekaterinburg. Initially it was used as the location of the Sverdlovsk Regional Committee of the CPSU. Since 1991, the building houses the Government of the Sverdlovsk Region. Until the collapse of the USSR, it was the highest building in the USSR for the regional committee of the CPSU. It bears the unofficial name "Tooth of Wisdom".
