Tverskaya street - true picture of Russian beauty


If you wanted to visit Moscow city, you’ll anyway get a possibility to see this street. It is located in the center of Moscow, so there will be no chance for you to miss it. The history of this place is rich and colorful.

Tverskaya street goes north-west from Kremlin, begins at the Manezhnaya square and ends near the Triumfalnaya square. 

History of Tverskaya street

In the XIV century Tverskaya street was a trade route between Moscow and Tver - capitals of two rival principalities. From XV century was connected with a road to Novgorod and began to gain larger value which led to the fact that in XVII century Tverskaya street was regarded as a main street for Moscow - it was a “front door” for all foreign ambassadors, kings, princes and other important people. After the creation of Saint Petersburg in 1703, Tverksaya was also a route to the other big city of Russian Empire, which was formed in 1721. In spite of being such a grandiose place for the whole empire, the width of Tverskaya was only from 8 to 15 meters.  Only at the time of Soviet Union it was reconstructed and had 40 meters breadthways. Also, in USSR Tverskaya was named in honor of famous Russian writer Maxim Gorky - he gained such an honor after his return to Moscow from Italy. But in 1990 Maxim Gorky street was renamed back to Tverskaya. Nowadays, Tverskaya street remains the main street of Moscow, although, it lost its length because of the development of infrastructure. Anyway, it contains a massive amount of interesting places, which will be listed in the next paragraph.

Interesting places

First of all, Tverskaya street is a concentration of famous and expensive hotels, cafes, restaurants and shops like “Mariott Grand Hotel”, “Hotel National” and other big names.

Architecture of Tverskaya is so gorgeous and expensive, because through all Tverskaya’s history it was a place to build rich, expensive and beautiful houses. 

Also, Tverskaya has two squares - Tverskaya square, how inconvenient, and Pushkinskaya square. Tverskaya was built in front of general-governor’s house. Its main goal was to serve as a place for daily guard’s separation.  Pushkinskaya square was built without an exact goal and is located at the intersection with Boulevard Ring.

Of course, the pearl of this street and entire Moscow is Kremlin. This is the oldest building and an official residence of Russia’s president. As it was mentioned earlier, Tverskaya street takes its start from Kremlin.

In addition, one of the oldest theatres of Moscow, “Mossovet theatre”, is located in a few meters from Tverskaya.

Tverskaya is a place of massive parades and national celebrations, so the roads are always shut on these days. This tradition comes straight from the reigning of Peter the Great.

Because of the large amount of clubs, restaurants and cafes, Tverskaya is also a center of a night-life, so this is the perfect place to hang out with your friends.

In conclusion, this is a must-see place for all the tourists that will help you learn a beauty of Russian culture.
