Moscow is famous for its history. There are a lot of monuments in Moscow. Some are widely known, and others are not. We get surprised when we come across them. One of the museums I was impressed by was the “Old English Court”. I would like to write about it. The museum “Old English Court” is situated in chambers of the Old English Court yard. It is a stone private residence. It was built at the beginning of 16th century in Varvarka street (on the Eastern side of the Kremlin). This house was the cradle of English-Russian trading under Ivan IV and Elisabeth I reign. Reign trade prospered between two countries for a century. Russia received wool, metal and all sorts of wines. In exchange it delivered furs, caviar, honey and ship wood.
The house was well-known, but people thought that it was lost. And only thanks to Peter Baranovsky's restoration works it was possible to return it to the city. It is one of the most ancient monuments of stone architecture.
It was opened on October, 18th, 1994 Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II took part in this ceremony. It is pleasant for us to open new corners of history in my city.
