Pogodin apartment building

Instead of an address, they used to write the name of the owner on the wall of the house - it was Pogodin's Apartment House. Here, from November 1824 to January 1825, the Decembrist poet Prince A. I. Odoevsky together with his comrade and cousin A. S. Griboedov. During the sixteen years of his absence in the capital, Griboedov acquired the status of a prominent Russian diplomat and writer. His “Woe from Wit” was such a popular play that fans came to Odoevsky's apartment to rewrite the comedy dictation. Among them were ladies of high society, ministers, and fellow writers and future revolutionaries.

Poetic friends moved out of this house immediately after the terrible flood in November 1824. The water began to rush in from 9 am on November 7, and when Griboedov woke up as usual at eleven, the river was bubbling instead of the street, carrying the wreckage of houses and ships, firewood and planks. Water leaked to the first floor, and Griboedov hurried up to the upper floor, and then to the attic of the then two-story house. Subsequently, Griboedov described his impressions of that time. Now the house is built on the third floor, renovated and is residential.
