Nikolay Nikonov Street appeared as a new street in Ekaterinburg in 2005. The place of the Iset river embankment, next to the Cosmos cinema and Dynamo stadium, was called Melkovskaya Sloboda. The writer Nikolay Nikonov was born and raised here. His first book of fairy tales for kids “Birch Leaf” was published in 1955. In 1959, he was admitted to the Writers’ Union. During the life of Nikolai Nikonov, 67 books and 7 foreign publications were published. “The Sun in the Birches”, “Snowdrops” are children’s books about beauty, love and kindness. The novels “Vestal”, “Aphrodite’s Cup” and “Steel Soldiers” tell about the tragedy of war. Nikolay Nikonov loved and described in his books the nature of the Urals. In the famous novel “The Verb of Imperfect Form” Nikolay Nikonov describes the places where he lived, the side streets of the old Melkovskaya Sloboda. Now this place is named after the writer himself – Nikolay Nikonov Street.
