Nalichnaya Street


The name of the street can be translated from Russian as "with face towards the sea"

Cash Street appeared in St. Petersburg in the first third of the 18th century. Since its birth, it has designated the western border of the poorest area of ​​the city - the Harbor. Initially, the road walked along two blocks, from Srednegavansky Prospekt to Skipper Canal. It was built up only on the east side, from the west it came very close to the sea. That is why the street began to be called Cash, that is, the street "facing the sea." The houses on Nalichnaya Street were mainly inhabited by Galernaya Harbor.

Temples were built here for the inhabitants of the Harbor. In 1733, a church was built on the site of house No. 8 in the name of the Holy Life-Giving Trinity, and in 1932 it was demolished.

 In 1792, a decaying wooden church by decree of Catherine II was thoroughly rebuilt by architect Jacob Perrin.

In the middle of the XIX century the street was returned to its original name - Cash. In 1886-1887, according to the project of A. K Pavlovsky and A. I. Polikarpov, a house for a church shelter for the poor was built here (house No. 9). By the 1890s, Cash Street was extended to Bolshoy Prospekt.
