Drama Theatre and March Centre of Photography
2, October square
1, 8 Marta str.
After the Yeltsin Centre, take a walk around the square near the Drama Theater and go to March Centre of Photography. This is a private exhibition photo centre, and now and then there are fascinating expositions. If you still have some energy, go there for a tour.
VISITING THE MUSEUM IS FREE
On the other side of the street there is the Second House of Councils (another name: the Chekist's House) — 12-storey skyscraper in the constructivist style, built in the 30s. This is the first skyscraper in Russia outside of Moscow and St. Petersburg. It is here that the first elevators in the city appeared. Later, Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin lived in the lower part of this building – on the second floor, in the part with the corner entrance.
