The older part of town sprawls southwest from the cathedral with numerous simple but archetypal ‘gingerbread’ timber houses. A few are comparatively grand former homes of Russian merchants and industrialists, including what's now the Pedagogical College on Gagarin (opposite the cathedral), the radio and TV office on Gebze (Kalinina) and another old merchant's home at the corner of Koenközova and Lenina.
