Continuation of our amazing journey around the squares of the capital with Alexander Frolov. This time we will go to the Red Gate Square.
A whole bunch of staff can be found at the Red Gate. Lermontov was born here, a funeral service over M. D. Skobelev was read here, the architect Dushkin (together with Mezentsev) built his huge house here. The house that was considered shortly the tallest apartment building in Moscow at the beginning of the twentieth century is located here. At the Red Gate, right on the square, stands the Zapasny Palace, which was built in the 18th century and is seen by few people, despite its impressive size. The Myasnitskaya street with its aristocratic palaces and the building of the Gostorg made of glass, which never obtained the owing tower. Only the Red Gate itself can’t be found here.
We’ll take a walk and see how the Red Gate affected the buildings around. We will call to memory the people who lived here.
Dress warmly, take umbrellas and come.
