Alexander Frolov will take you for a walk around the Zamoskvorechye. We will see the most densely built up and therefore very interesting fragment of the area – the beginning of Pyatnitskaya street and the area where the Ovchinnikovskaya Sloboda was situated more than 300 years ago.
We’ll go into a few yards, imagine how people lived in them at different times. We will see houses that have turned several centuries old. We will try to see the oldest part of Zamoskvorechye through the eyes of the local residents.
On the way, we will see not only the buildings of the venerable age, but also, for example, the constructivist house, several dozen residents of which were repressed in the middle of the twentieth century.
The architectural decoration of the area is its churches. We will see how the church of Clement Pope and John the Baptist arises from small houses, we will examine the churches of Mikhail and Fyodor of Chernigov, Michael Archangel in the Ovchinniki, see how they have influenced the perception of the area before – and how they affect now.
Particular attention will be paid to the architectural features of the Zamoskvoretskye buildings. Come.
