In St. Petersburg, following the example of European cities, there are several pedestrian streets that have become attractions of our city.
Malaya Konyushennaya was reconstructed according to the project of the city’s chief artist Felix Romanovsky. At the end of the pedestrian zone, at the corner with Shvedsky lane, a monument to the Policeman was opened, later, at the beginning of the street, near Nevsky Prospekt, a monument to Nikolai Gogol was installed. In addition, in the center of Malaya Konyushennaya there is a unique street clock that shows not only the time, but also the atmospheric pressure and air temperature. The famous writer M. M. Zoshchenko lived in the house No. 4 on Malaya Konyushennaya street, and this house houses his memorial Museum.
