History

The Pushka Inn Hotel occupies No. 14 Moyka Embankment referred to as Pushchin's House.

From the late XVIII century, three generations of the Pushchins owned that private residence for almost one hundred years. The Pushchins were an old noble family originating as long ago as in the XV century.

Last bright representative of the famous family, Ivan Pushchin, was known as the closest friend of the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.

Alexander Pushkin carried the memory of the children's and youths' friendship with him for the rest of his life. In the exile, he wrote some beautiful and poignant lines and dedicated them to Ivan Pushchin:

«My precious friend, my friend forever!
And I have thanked my own stars
When lonely and snowbound yard
Of my secluded poor shelter
Was made alive by your sleigh-bell.»
