Former N.G.Grigoryev’s apartment house is decorated with a bas-relief of the Lorelei, a river fairy, a character of German national legends and poetry, concerned with a Lurlei cliff on Rhine. This house was built at Pyatnitskaya street at the beginning of the 20th century.
By the way, my friends, the “Zemlya Legend” (Land of Legends) band from Voronezh, have a great song about Lorelei. You can listen to this song, named “Vody Reina” (Waters of Rhine) at their public page.
