You will walk with Alexander Frolov along Pyatnitskaya Street. We will start from the metro station Dobryninskaya, cross the square and go along the Pyatnitskaya, looking into the alleys and courtyards. As always, we will recall the history of this street, look at the architecture of the preserved buildings and imagine the non-preserved buildings. It will be interesting to compare the facades of the Rekk mansion and the bell tower of the Trinity Church in Vishnyaki. It seems so different, but in fact they are almost identical, only the details are slightly different. The Industrial architecture will be represented by I. D. Sytin’s printing house, the church architecture – by two real temples and one virtual. The residential houses and apartment houses will complement the picture. We will how the buildings were overbuilt in a good and bad way, look at the subtlest interpretation of the architectural heritage of the Renaissance in the middle of the 20th century. The oldest building on our path dates back to the 17th century, there are few constructions of the 16 century and many much younger, but interesting buildings.
The length of our route is a little less than three kilometers, ending near the metro station Novokuznetskaya. Come!
