Walking along Maroseyka, turn into a nice cozy courtyard of house number 13, located 100 meters from the Maroseyka 2/15 hotel.

The courtyard is unusual in that ruins are preserved there – part of a residential building that has been preserved since the 18th century, owned by a native of Persia, the owner of the Fryanovsky manufactory, the merchant Lazar Nazarovich Lazarev (Lazaryan).

According to another version, these are fragments of an old church …

The wooden part of the house collapsed, and only the facade, painted bright red, with original plaster, and the door frame of the late 19th century remained from the brick extension.

Unusual, right?
