The guide and lecturer Alexander Stadnik noticed that its formation Gogol street owes to Germans who were invited to work at the Kharkiv university. And at the beginning of the street they built the temple. After the Germans, Kharkiv Poles built the church on this street, and at the end of the street was one of the oldest Orthodox churches in Kharkiv – Mironositskaya church. “Thus, Gogol street, at least before the Revolution was one of the most cosmopolitan in our cosmopolitan city,” said Stadnik.
