A historical complex of the Tsarskoye Selo Gostiny Dvor (25 Moskovskaya Street) is located between Oranzhereinaya Street and Leontyevskaya Street. The complex includes the main building built by the architect N.S. Nikitin in 1863-1866 and rebuilt by A.R. Bach in 1898; Meat Stalls was built by N.S. Nikitin in 1843-1844; an ice- storehouse was built by A.R. Bach. A distant arch gallery along the main façade is a distinguishing feature of the complex. A shopping center was placed here according to the town plan of V.I. Geste in 1808. The first wooden Gostiny Dvor was built on this place in 1825 by V.P. Stasov according to V.I. Geste’s plan. Later the butchery and grocery was transferred into the specially equipped stone Meat Stalls. Here there were storerooms with ice-boxes, meat, fish and green stalls. The Gostiny Dvor was belonged to the town. 85 different shops were leased to merchants on agreements with the Town Council and were the main source of income of the town treasury.
