barracks of the Cossack and Ataman Regiments

It was here, starting from the forties of the XIX century, that units of the Cossack and Ataman Life Guards regiments were housed.

As the name suggests, these shelves were equipped with Cossacks. These regiments themselves originally belonged to the Donskoy army and as an elite were seconded to protect the Emperor of Russia and members of his family during their stay in the capital, as well as in their trips to country.

Despite the privileged nature of the service, these military units cannot be called a “parade army”. Cossacks of the Ataman and Cossack regiments participated in the battles of the Napoleonic Wars, heroically showed themselves near Poltava and in the battles of the Russian-Turkish wars of the XIX century, and also took part in campaigns to Poland. On the battlefields of the First World War, the battle banners of these regiments were also covered with everlasting glory.

The complex “Kazachy and Ataman Regiments Barracks” includes several buildings, most of which were designed by architects I. D. Chernik and A. N. Gemilian. The barracks of the Life Guards Cossack Regiment include the Soldier and the Officer Corps. The soldier corps of the Life Guards Ataman Regiment is similar to the soldier's corps of the Cossack Regiment, but in much better condition.

The complex also includes the Officer Corps of the Crimean Tatar Squadron. Interestingly, it was built with funds collected from the Crimean Tatars. The officer corps of the Ataman regiment was built later and looks different from others. The Officer and Soldier Corps of the Black Sea Division looks very interesting.
