Like walking and ready to share positive emotions
Zamoskvorechye (literally “beyond the Moscow river”) is a beautiful ancient district close to Red Square and the Kremlin. The first mention of the area refers to 14th century, lately here lived royal guards and artisans serving the court. In the 19th century wealthy merchants settled here, many of whom were patrons of the arts. Zamoskvorechye is a proud survivor of prerevolutionary Moscow, as it remained relatively untouched by the replanning of the 1930s. The area is bursting with historic character and an old-fashioned atmosphere. A tour includes Pyatnitskaya and Bolshaya Ordynka Streets, Klimentovskiy and Lavrushinsky Lanes and Kadashevskaya embankment with numerous palaces, museums and churches built on merchants’ contributions as a gift to Moscow.
