There are not so many people who know that there is a whole medical town created in the 19th century in the west of Moscow. We’d like to dedicate our excursion to this interesting place. You will pass through the main streets of the Clinical town, and hear a lot of fascinating stories. The clinical town is located on Bolshaya and Malaya Pirogovskaya streets, on Malaya Trubetskaya, Rossolimo, Yelansky, Pogodin, Usachev streets and Plyushchikha. A lot of famous architects took part in the construction of the clinical campus: R.I. Klein, A.F.Meisner, M.I.Nikiforov, but the main role belongs to the university architect K.M. Bykovsky. Almost all of its buildings were built in the style of the Italian Renaissance, but everywhere the nature of the institutions located in them was taken into account. You will learn about outstanding personalities and important names in the history of medicine.

From the tour you will also learn:

  • how was created the clinical town, which became the center of the Russian medical school;
  • what contribution to the world science left the academicians who created the Clinical town;
  • why Bolshaya Pirogovskaya is secretly called “the alley of life”;
  • why the great German pathologist Rudolf Vikhrov once exclaimed: “Learn from the Russians!”;
  • and many other interesting facts.

Great stories - great people, great discoveries! Learn about Russia’s contribution to the development of world medicine
