Shovkovychna Street

Shovkovychna Street is located in the historic district of Kyiv – Lypky. It begins from the Hrushevskogo street and goes down the Pechersk hill to the junction with Basseina and Mechnikov street.

The building of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine closes a flat part of the street.

The lower part (from the odd side) is adjacent to the oldest of Kiev – Alexanderska hospital. On its territory the Orthodox of St. Mychailo church was built.

Since the end of the eighteenth century it was known as Aptekarska street. The name comes from one of the first Kyiv drugstore, which was at the intersection with the Hrushevskogo street.

In the 1830s, after the completion of the paving of the street, it became known as Shovkovychna street. A huge mulberry garden was destroyed here during the housing of Lypky district.

In 1869 the street was renamed to Levashovska, in honor of the Kyiv governor-general Valentyn Levashov, who in 1834 -1837created the Lypky plan.

Since 1919, it began to bear the name of the German leader of the international communist movement Karl Liebknecht.

Only in 1993, the street was returned the current historical name – Shovkovychna street.

The street is mostly built up with residential buildings of the late nineteenth - early twentieth centuries.

Today one can see the buildings of historicism and modernism period, as well as houses of late constructivism (1930 years) and neoclassical (1950 years) style.

Kyiv residents, of course, remember Shovkovychna Central Palace of marriages and births registration, which was in the house number 17, built in the style of the Venetian Renaissance.

There is another very interesting building on the 17/2, Shovkovychna street – Shokoladhyi Dim. Brick red color, which the walls of the house are plastered, caused such name.

A lot of famous people lived on the Shovkovychna street. A writer Wanda Vasylevska and her husband, playwright Oleksander Korneichuk, film director Alexander Dovzhenko and his wife - a film director and actress - Julia Solntseva and artist Oleksander Pashchenco lived in the house number 10.

A poet Mykola Bazhan lived in the house number 19.

The party and state leaders of the Ukrainian SSR lived at the house number 26, they are: Oleksiy Vatchenko, Oleksander Liashko, Stepan Mucha, Ivan Sokolov, Volodymyr Scherbitskyi.
