1 On February 1, 1837, the funeral of A.S. Pushkin took place in the Church of the Savior of the Miraculous Image 

The building of the Church of the Savior of the Miraculous Image is part of the Konyushenny Dvor complex and is the compositional center of its southern facade. The original wooden church in the main building of the Court Stables was built under the Empress Anna Ioannovna and consecrated in the name of the Savior Not Made by Hand Image in 1737. At the behest of Empress Elizabeth Petrovna, the church building was rebuilt in stone. On December 23, 1746, the empress “in the morning at 10 o’clock in the morning deigned to go to her stable of the imperial court to consecrate the church, which is on the gate; and in the stable yard, in the office, she deigned to eat dinner dishes” [Cit. by: 3, p. fourteen].

Already in 1746, at the direction of Empress Elizabeth Petrovna, the church was rebuilt in stone, and in 1747 it was re-consecrated. On February 1, 1837, the funeral of A.S. Pushkin took place in the Church of the Savior of the Miraculous Image. At that time the church was a court but special permission was received from Emperor Nicholas I. After the funeral ceremony was completed, the coffin with Pushkin's body was transferred to the basement. On the night of February 4, he was secretly sent at night to the burial place in the Svyatogorsky monastery. In 1857, a memorial service was also held here according to M.I. Glinka.
