History

The majestic building appeared on the parade ground square of Astrakhan at the end of the XVIII century and complemented the architectural ensemble consisting of another shopping complex and a public school. Today, on the site of the parade ground is a fraternal garden. Three floors of the Moscow Trading House were occupied by shops selling goods for various purposes, cellars and warehouses where visitors and local merchants kept goods, as well as residential chambers where merchants stayed.

After half a century of active operation, the building began to collapse. In 1887, the reconstruction affected the colonnade and gallery of the main facade. Builders dismantled the crumbling parts of the building, demolished the exterior stairs, decorated with porticos.

By the end of the twentieth century, the trading house acquired panoramic windows on the first floor, made in the European manner. Changes occurred not only outside, but also inside. To this day, only the name and foundation remained from the creation of the famous architect, everything else was significantly redone.

The revolution of 1917 made adjustments to the life of the country, the Moscow Trading House was cleared of merchants, and the building was given to the Council of National Economy of Astrakhan.

Ancient history and natural resources have made Astrakhan a place of attraction for tourists. Someone goes here to fish in a full-flowing river, someone wants to improve his health on the Russian “dead sea” – Lake Baskunchak, and someone gets acquainted with the history and culture of the Lower Volga region.

Astrakhan Kremlin

The Kremlin in Astrakhan is part of the fortress, as in many other Russian cities. The Kremlin since the XVI century stands on top of a hill, on Hare Island. Three rivers flow around the island, so it was impossible to penetrate the fortress unnoticed. From eight watchtowers to this day survived only four: Bishop,” Zhitnaya, Crimean and “Red Gate”.

In addition to these towers, the torture tower, located in the Artillery Tower, as well as the water gate leading to the Volga, has been preserved. During the siege, through this gate went for water to the river. Since 1974, the Astrakhan Kremlin has the status of a museum and an architectural monument. The expositions of the museum include not only historical objects, but also ethnographic ones.

Cathedral of Prince Vladimir

A large majestic temple was planned to be built for the feast of the 900th anniversary of Christianity in Russia. But suddenly there was a dry summer, the harvest died, famine came, and with it the cholera epidemic. It was not possible to raise funds for the construction, but the idea did not leave the citizens. The necessary amount was collected only by 1895. In 1902, the first Liturgy was held in the cathedral, and 17 years later the church was destroyed by workers captured by the idea of revolution.

In 1923, the struggle for the building of the temple began renovationists, and in 1936 were able to recapture the temple from the Soviet regime. But their joy was short-lived, 1939 broke out, the spirit of the approaching war was in the air. The Soviet authorities made a warehouse out of the temple, and then equipped the bus station.

The cathedral returned to the faithful only in 1999. A long reconstruction returned the temple to its former grandeur, and today in the 50-meter cathedral of unique architecture in the Byzantine style, the Liturgy is again served.

P. M. Dogadin Art Gallery

The house became the first and largest art museum in Astrakhan. Today its expositions number almost 20 thousand exhibits: paintings, albums with sketches and sketches, books, icons and porcelain.

House of merchant Tetyushinov

Merchant Tetyushinov parted with a new, built in 1872, house after the revolution. The mansion is built in the best traditions of Russian wooden architecture, a real fairy-tale tower, in the upper rooms of which red girls roll a liquid apple on a plate.

The terem is decorated with patterned platbands, carved columns and decorative elements. The interior of the house almost did not suffer from the invaders, the museum has reached our days in its original form.

Today in the house of the merchant are arranged folklore festivals, fair festivities, excursions and tea parties with kalachs.
