Sorcerer's Tower (Sukharevskaya Tower)

Once upon a time, the current Sretenka was the outskirts of the city, so for safety reasons, a wooden tower was built here. Then (during the reign of Peter the Great), the tower turned into a stone structure through the efforts of the authorities. It was here that the king's ally, the warlock Jacob Bruce, settled.

There were legends about this surprisingly intelligent man. It was said that he could heal and had magical powers that could open all doors.

After a while, the Soviet authorities became interested in the personality of Yakov Bruce. The top of the Soviet country was especially interested in the legend that a treasure was hidden in its tower. The building was ordered to be destroyed, and the treasure had to be found by all means. However, the destruction of the tower did not lead to anything — the story of the treasure was never confirmed.

However, there are rumors among Muscovites that since then, at the end of Sretenka Street, on the site of the former tower, the ghost of a warlock monk has begun to appear, who still hopes to see his house intact and safety.
