Vilensky Lane - between Paradnaya and Uprising.
The nameless lane, originating from Uprising Street and extending to the Main Street, appeared in the 18th century and was built up mainly with tenement houses, initially it was shorter by more than a third and rested on Radishchev Street, it was extended only in 1825.
Numbering in the alley is from Uprising Street. It received its first name - Hospital - Lane in 1798 in honor of the Preobrazhensky Regiment hospital located on it. In the same period, variants of the name were applied to it: Gofshpitalny, Goshpitalny, Preobrazhenskaya hospital street, Preobrazhensky state hospital lane. In 1858, he received a new name. Now its name is associated with the city of Vilnius - the administrative center of the Vilnius province. The renaming took place after the reform of the western provinces, which also gave new names to Kovensky, Mitavsky and Grodno lanes. The revolution of 1917, which caused a lot of renaming, including the city on the Neva, did not ignore the modest Vilensky Lane. In 1922, he was promoted to the rank of Red Link Street, in honor of the military signalmen located here.
The historical name - Vilensky - Lane again received in 1998 in the wake of the universal return of pre-revolutionary names. So the ups and downs of history were reflected in the fate of a small lane between Uprising Street and Main Street.
