Lesja Ukrainka came from Kolodjazhne to Kyiv approximately March 15, 1889, and stopped at Elisabeth Ivanovna Rashevska on Tarasivska street, 7. She lived here until mid-April 1889, treating a sick foot with a massage. From here she went to the village Kosivshchyna near Sumy.

The memorable building No. 7 has not been preserved, in its place a three-storey residential building (pictured) was constructed in the 1920s construction style.
