Proletkultskaya Street

Aleksandr Zelikov/TASS

Proletkultskaya Ulitsa (Proletkultskaya Street) is the city's shortest, with only two houses – No. 3 and No. 5. House No. 5 is a former merchant mansion, but, unfortunately, no information about its owners and construction has been preserved. The street was given its contemporary name after the revolution of 1917, and before that it was called Yekaterininskaya Ulitsa (Yekaterininskaya Street), and was one of this suburb's principal thoroughfares. Back then, the street had many more buildings, but today they are attributed to other streets – Komsomolskaya Ulitsa (Komsomolskaya Street) and Ulitsa Mira (Mira Street), and Prospekt Lenina (Lenina Avenue).
