Categories / City Topography/Urban Network/Streets

PUSHKINSKAYA STREET (until 1881 Novy Avenue, Kompaneiskaya Street), between Nevsky Prospect and Kuznechny Lane. It was named after Alexander Pushkin. The street was built in 1874 and actually is a creation of architect P.Y. Suzor, who designed symmetrical corner buildings 1 and 2 (1874-75), and then apartment houses 3, 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 (1876-78). Buildings 4 and 6 were constructed in the 1870s (architect V.I. Slavyansky), building 16 - in 1875-76 (architect I.A. Merz), buildings 17, 18, 20 - in 1875-81 (architect A.V. Ivanov), building 19 - in 1878-87 (architect N.F. Becker). In 1884, the monument to Alexander Pushkin (sculptor A.M. Opekushin, architect N.L. Benois) was unveiled in the public garden on Pushkinskaya Street. Pushkinskaya Street is a rare example of town-planning of the second half of the 19th century and the entire development was executed in the style of high eclecticism. The following historic figures lived on Pushkinskaya Street at different times: in 1884-93 - actress P.A. Strepetova (building 10), in 1899-1904 - astronomer F.A. Bredikhin (building 14); F.I. Chaliapin and actor M. V. Dalsky lived in furnished apartments of Palais Royal (building 20), et al. In the late 20th century, building 10 became a centre of informal public association "Pushkinskaya-10" (see Free Culture).
