1. Buninsky Square
Saint Petersburg, Fontanka Emb., 84
It was in 2016 that another memorable place connected with the life and work of the great Russian writer I.A. Bunin, Buninsky Square, appeared on the map of Saint Petersburg. A small street, cozy and old, just a 400-meter stretch connecting Zagorodny Prospekt and the Fontanka River embankment, was named Borodinskaya after the village of Borodino, dear to every Russian.
Over the years, famous figures of Russian culture lived on Borodinskaya Street, among them: actors K.V. Skorobogatov, A.I. Larikov, V.P. Poliseimako, V.Y.Sofonov, composer I.O.Dunaevsky. Buninsky Square is located on this street not far from the addresses associated with the Petersburg life of I. A. Bunin. One can imagine how young, full of energy and literary inspiration, the future great Russian writers Ivan Bunin and Alexander Kuprin, who lived very close, could walk along this old Saint Petersburg street.
