Categories / City Topography/Urban Network/Streets

FURSHTATSKAYA STREET, from Liteiny Avenue to Potemkinskaya Street. The street was laid in the 18th century next to Liteiny Court and named Third Artilleryskaya Street, to adopt the name Furshtatskaya (Furshtadtskaya) Street in 1806 only, after so-called furshtat (a military transport unit), the transport of the Preobrazhensky Life Guards Regiment, located on the site of house No. 21. From 1923 to 1991, it was called Petra Lavrova Street, in commemoration of P.L. Lavrov, who lived here in houses Nos. 62 and 50 at various times. The only remnant of the buildings of the first half of the 19th century is house No. 26, formerly the Circuit Court of Liteinaya Police-Station. At the turn of the 19th - 20th centuries Furshtatskaya Street was built over with apartment houses and mansions of nobility. In 1896-99, house No. 52 was built (architect A.I. von Gogen), the former K.A. Vargunin"s mansion (see the Vargunin Family) and now a Wedding Palace. House No. 24, formerly Prince V.S. Kochubey"s mansion, was built in 1908-10 (1908-10, architect R.F. Meltzer); the building is a striking example of the Art Nouveau style. House No. 27 (once belonged to merchant A.G. Eliseev) was occupied by A.F. Koni in 1878-85, while I.L. Goremykin, the chairman of the Council of Ministers, lived in house No. 14.
