In November 2004 Cultural center "The Pokrovskie gate" after a thorough and gentle restoration has moved to new premises – the mansion-homestead of family Botkins on Pokrovka Street. In the second half of the XIX century, the gallery of Dmitry Petrovich Botkin, a member of the Moscow art society, possessor of vast collection of paintings by Western European artists, was one of the sights of Moscow. This historical fact can be considered symbolic: almost 150 years ago in this house had thrown a bridge between the cultures of Russia and Western Europe. Cultural center "The Pokrovskie gate" hopes to continue this tradition, to breathe into it new life and become a place of meeting and dialogue of all who seek the true values of human culture.
