Farther up the street you will find Ermolova Drama Theater – though it has survived the Soviet times, it was rebuilt several times in the 19th century. Constructed in 1835, in 1880 it already saw its facades changed by architect Voskresensky. Since then it hosted a trade gallery owned by merchants Postnikov. In 1910 – 1913, the building gained two atlantes and the central dome. After the revolution, in 1936 traders were forced out by the famous Meyerhold Theater which lasted only two years. In 1940, the director was executed charged with counter-revolutionary activity. Since 1946, the place is taken by its current host theater.
