The yard of House 6 along Zhukovsky Street is known as the "Courtyard of Arts". Huge paintings on the walls are dedicated to the heroes of Pushkin's poem "Ruslan and Lyudmila." There is a knight, and a talking head, and the Cat - Scientist, and the Mermaid here as well.

The Arts court got its name not only because of paintings from Pushkin's works. Here, several types of arts were sheltered at once: mosaic, colorful bas-reliefs, sculpture, and graffiti. One of the authors of the paintings is the artist-storyteller Valery Ivanov, known in St. Petersburg as Valerius.
