Many years ago there was an ancient forest. Later, after the foundation of the capital, the forest was cut down and plowed up for the lands. In the XIII century the residential village, which was enclosed from the Kremlin by a superficial ravine, was build here. To protect from enemies, that posad was supposed to be burned out, that is how it got its first name - Pozhar (En. "Fire"). In 1492 the builders finished to construct the Kremlin Wall, but had not passed even a year when the Kremlin was enveloped in flames, so the fire went over the wall and burned the village down to ashes. Subsequently that incident, the Grand Duke directed to leave the territory for 109 sazhen from the Kremlin building without any edifices. But even after this Pozhar did not became the square, because in the beginning of the XVI century a huge 36 meters wide ditch was supposed to be created along the Kremlin Wall. Only in the beginning of the XIX century this ditch was filled up, but even today it is possible to see its traces in the western side of the square, where the stone paving slumps from a fill-up-soil, on which it was laid on.
