Historical Place Of Moscow: The Chambers Of Prince Yusupov


Parts of ancient Moscow with its golden-domed churches, gingerbread cottages and magnificent palaces can still be found in the noisy and vain streets of the megalopolis.

Between the Garden and the Boulevard Ring (Sadovoye and Bulvarnoye Koltso) there is a place greatly favored by Russian noblemen of the 17th century. In spite of its major reconstructions done in modern times the Volkov-Yusupov Chambers still decorate this quiet part of Moscow city. According to a legend, a famous palace of Ivan the Terrible used to be located here. Once the Tsar was enjoying the falconry hunting in the nearby forests and his hat fell on the ground suddenly. He got very angry and ordered to build a palace at the place.

A special tunnel connecting the palace with the Kremlin was found during the reconstruction of the Yusupov Chambers and walled up.
