Three Lost Monuments of Late-17th-Century Civillian Architecture in Moscow

The construction fever of the 1990–2000s cost Moscow a large number of historical buildings, including some of the oldest in the city — edifices of the times before and during the early years of Peter the Great’s reign. This work describes some personal observations, made in the course of destruction of three notable monuments of civillian architecture, dating to the late 17th century in the Bely Gorod and Zamoskvorechiye.
