VLADIMIRSKAYA SQUARE, in 1739 - Torgovaya Square, in 1923-50 - Nakhimsona Square after revolutionary S. M. Nakhimson (1885-1918). The square is bounded by Zagorodny Avenue, Vladimirsky Avenue, Kuznechny Lane, Kolokolnaya Street, and Bolshaya Moskovskaya Street. Houses are numbered in the same sequence as in Vladimirsky Avenue. The square was so named after the Church of Our Lady of Vladimir, which has existed since the 1860s. It was designed by the Commission for St. Petersburg Buildings in the 1740s.
