Povarskoy Lane is between Stremyannaya Street and Kolokolnaya Street
Povarskoy Lane (originally called Basmannaya Street; in the 1770s, it was renamed Povarskaya Street, remained as such until the 1790s). It was built in the 1740s, following the designs of the St. Petersburg Construction Commission. In the middle of the 18th century, court cooks settled here (hence the name, meaning cook lane). The majority of buildings date back to the 19th - early 20th centuries. In Povarskoy Lane, many men of letters lived, such as F. Sologub (building 1, 1899), N.K. Simonov (building 4, 1930s), V.M. Garshin (building 5, 1887-88), N.A. Nekrasov (building 13, 1845), I.S. Turgenev (building 13, 1853-54) and N.G. Chernyshevsky (building 13, 1855).
