Kondrat Bulavin’s House

Mikhail Modrasov/ТАSS

The famous leader of the Cossacks, Kondratii Bulavin, led the people’s upspring in 1707-1709, which later on was called in his name. The reasons for the upspring was Peter the Great’s interference with the Cossacks’ life and the attempt to cut their freedoms.

Bulavin lived in this house in 1707-1708, and legends say he was killed by the wealthy Cossacks, who did not support him, as they did not want conflicts with the tsar.
