Kirov Square

The square emerged after taking away the burnt remains of the former shopping arcades and Kuznetsovsky stalls in 1890–1891. At different times the square was called Kremlevskaya, Spasskaya, Bogorodskaya, Tikhvinskaya, Gostinodvorskaya. In 1935 the square was renamed after S. Kirov who was a prominent early Bolshevik leader in the Soviet Union and who lived in Irkutsk illegally from 1908 to 1909.
