Arches of Tolstovsky House

The house was built for Major General Peter Tolstoy in 1910-1912. The arches, invented by Lidval, became the hallmark of the house. They are depicted on postcards, they can be seen in the cinema. High, with semi-columns on the sides, decorated with lanterns and round windows, the arches create an atmosphere of the XIX century. The courtyards of the house form the whole city, and the road that passes through the three arches bears the unofficial name "Architect Lidvall Street".
