The history of the building of the hotel in Yekaterinburg “Chekhov”

The street where the hotel is located, in the XIX century. It was called Uktus, as it went in the direction of the Uktus factory. In this place flour and grain trade of Yekaterinburg was concentrated. It is not surprising that the merchant Ivan Mikhailovich Belinkov - the owner of land, forests, glass, distillery and iron smelters - bought a house on Uktus street number 32. The building was erected in the middle of the XIX century and was the main building of the estate. The house belonged to the type of apartment building by the warblers.
