Valentin Yudashkin's showroom in Moscow. Moscow lacks small cozy house with history, but it is not always associated with such great names. In the documents of the house number 6 on Voznesensky Lane existed since 1716. At that time it was owned by the lawyer with a key (court rank, later replaced by Chamberlain) Pankraty B. Sumarokov. A year later came to light, his grandson, Alexander Petrovich Sumarokov, poet and playwright, the director of the first Russian theater. Although the fame of "North Racine," as it was called by his contemporaries, won in St. Petersburg, his childhood and youth here, in this house.
