An entire block at No 17 is occupied by a yellow neoclassical building with an ominous, temple-like Corinthian portal - the KGB Headquarters .

This yellow neoclassical building occupies an entire block and its ominous, temple-like Corinthian portal looks down over Independence Square (ploshcha Nezalezhnastsi). On the opposite side of the street is a long, narrow park with a bust of terror-monger Felix Dzerzhinsky, the founder of the KGB's predecessor, the Cheka.
