Once upon a time, there was a house on this site (2 Laboratorna Street) where Anna Ivanovna Sudovschikova had lived, a friend of the Kosach family. Here the Kosach family stopped on August 8 – 15 (Julian style) 1883 on the way from Gadjach to Kolodjazhne.

At this time, the parents showed Lesja Ukrainka to the Kyiv doctors, and it was decided that Professor O. Ch. Rinek would perform a surgery on her left hand wrist.
