    Trading Houses on the Lenin Square were built in 1790-1800 in traditional Russian style.
    After disintegration of the USSR new names have been given to main squares of the cities or previous names have been returned. However at the majority of cities (including Ryazan) the name of Lenin still present alongside with one-nominal street and prospectus. As a rule the monument to Lenin is established on such squares and I’ve already written about it on my previous tip.
