    The Central square

    The central square of the city was originally called the Church Square. And, of course, at first merchants gathered here. After some time first stone buildings appeared around the square. In one of them was located the Mountain Chancellery. In the XX century, the square was transformed: it was paved with stones, which has survived to nowadays. In the thirties the church received the status of a cathedral, in honor of which the square was renamed. Thus, by the beginning of the 20 century, the square was tightly surround by buildings. The first political demonstrations and rallies took place here in 1905. In honor of these events, fourteen years later, the square received its current name. In the years of Soviet power, the square was the center of many events. Today there are popular shopping centers — Passage, Uspensky, and Europe are situated near the square. Different restaurants and cafes are located within walking distance. Concerts are held here on holidays.

    The Sevastyanov House

    The Sevastyanov House in Ekaterinburg is a mansion built in the first quarter of the XIX century on the bank of the Iset River. The house of the Ural businessman Nikolai Sevastyanov is an example of eclecticism, combining Gothic and Moorish architectural styles in the Ural-Siberian region. According to legend, the owner built a luxurious mansion to the envy of the whole city, and he himself lived in a small house opposite. He was sitting on a bench in front of the house, admired his creation every evening.
    After Sevastyanov received a promotion in St. Petersburg, the building was acquired by the treasury. From 1874 to 1917, the house based the Ekaterinburg District Court, then the country’s first Ural Commissariat of Labor. The architectural style of the building influenced the appearance of neo-Gothic buildings in Ekaterinburg. In 2008, a decision was made to reconstruct the building for the residence of the President of Russia at the SCO summit.
