I'm making requests to reverse nominatin service to get address. In the response in JSON format I get an object like that:

{"place_id":"1250030","licence":"Data © OpenStreetMap contributors, ODbL 1.0. http:\/\/\/copyright","osm_type":"node","osm_id":"5112376117","lat":"51.712222","lon":"39.1557368","display_name":"Ангстрем, 44, бульвар Победы, Северный, Коминтерновский район, Воронеж, городской округ Воронеж, Воронежская область, Центральный федеральный округ, 394077, Россия","address":{"furniture":"Ангстрем","house_number":"44","road":"бульвар Победы","suburb":"Северный","city_district":"Коминтерновский район","city":"Воронеж","county":"городской округ Воронеж","state":"Воронежская область","postcode":"394077","country":"Россия","country_code":"ru"},"extratags":{},"boundingbox":["51.712122","51.712322","39.1556368","39.1558368"]}
