Chuy Prospekti originated as Kupecheskaya (Merchant) Street, and in 1924 it was renamed into Grazhdanskaya (Civil) Street. From 1936 it is known as Stalin Street, 1961 - XXII Parts'ezd Street, and in 1974 as Lenin Prospekt. Before the October Revolution Serafim Church, Tatar Mosque with medrese together with merchant's small shops, timber houses, and clay-walled huts were located along the street. In 1920-s the church was adopted for a social club, and the mosque and the medrese were converted to a school. All those buildings did not survived to present days.
