Bulgakov, who lived at Sadovaya, 10, contributed to the creation of such fame - many have re-read the immortal novel "The Master and Margarita" more than once, therefore, having arrived in Moscow, they strive to get here.
The history of the Patriarch's Ponds begins much earlier. Once upon a time in this area there was a Goat swamp (later Bolshoi Kozikhinsky and Maly Kozikhinsky lanes were named in memory of it). At the very end of the sixteenth century, the residence of Patriarch Joachim was located in this place. Then the Patriarchal Sloboda appeared.
To grow fish for the patriarch, three ponds were dug, which were later called the Patriarchs. Unfortunately, only one has survived to this day, and only the name of Tryokhprudny Lane speaks of the existence of others. After the end of the war in 1812, Patriarch's Pondsthe Russian poet I. Dmitriev moves to “live out his life”. He lived here for twenty years.
Zhukovsky, Karamzin, Gogol, Pushkin, Baratynsky came to visit him.
L. N. Tolstoy. He brought his daughters here to skate. Every winter, a beautiful natural skating rink appeared here. Many great people came to the Patriarch's Ponds. The rink was a meeting place. It was fun and carefree for everyone here.
The great Vladimir Mayakovsky lived not far from the Patriarch's Ponds, and Alexander Blok spent one winter here in Moscow. A whole dynasty of famous Russian actors Sadovsky lived nearby. The actress and singer Lidia Ruslanova lived not far from them. This is not a complete list of famous people who lived in this corner of Moscow.
In Soviet times, the Patriarch's Ponds wanted (and even made such an attempt) to be renamed Pioneer Ponds. Luckily, the name didn't stick. Patriarch's Ponds, both in the past and today, are an elite place, famous and quite we althy people live here.
