October Sanct Petersburg Hotel
Also at Peter I in 1714, Petersburg received the first elephant, a gift to the Russian king from the Persian chess. By the 1730s, they were a few years old and they were living on the Starbuck on the coast of Fontank. In September 1741, the Imperial Palace received 14 more elephants, which required a special place for these huge animals. The building office chose a place that "above the Canal League, in the pool, sand, high and scattered the base forest" Here, on the north side of the future area of Restoria, in 1744, there was an ivy. [1, c. 9]
The territory was surrounded by a fence, there was a sign on the gate that says, "The elephant of her hunting." There was a lot of people around the fence. There was a trade of different snows coming from here.
The animals were kept in huge barn bars with walls of oak bars. Feed them with sugar cane, wheat flour. They added cinnamon, nuts, nails... They were supposed to be even grapes up to 40 woders a year. However, rare products delivered to the ivory were most likely to be spent not on animal needs, but on the farms of service personnel.
At first, the entrance was closed to ordinary people. The searchers could only see the elephants during their walks to the pond, excavated where the hulls of the Rauchfus Hospital are now located (Ligov p. 8). Later, the animals started to take them to town to show the public. They were taken to walk to Nev on a subsection that subsequently became Slona Street (now Svorovsky Prospect). The elephants were always followed by a crowd of zevak. By pointing out their useless time of reproducing, the recruits started saying, "they're screaming."
In 1778, the Elephant was transferred to the Czar Celé. There were racketed sheds in the liberated place, and there were wooden houses next to them. They had wooden fences to the square.
Big North Hotel,
No, no. 1880th
The fate of the entire area changed the appearance of Nikolaevsky (now Moscow) station. Prior to its construction in 1844, an architect of N. E. Efimov developed a land-planning project. On its northern side, they were marked by a large area that Nicolai I donated to Ponamareev's buyer for the construction of a hotel and trade facilities on their money. They were instructed to start the construction in the same 1845 years, and to complete all the work after three years. By failing to perform its duties, the station was transferred to Count Stanbock-Fermore.
