"Tverskaya street" Tverskaya Street Tip by Anya_D

Tverskaya Street, Moscow: 35 reviews and 58 photos


Tverskaya street, during soviet years was called Gorkogo (after a famous soviet writer Maxim Gorky), in early 90s its historical name was returned. The name originates from the city of Tver, whereto Tverskaya road leads. The building in the picture is Mossovet, or the Moscow Government. The monument in the left corner is to Yuri Dolgoruki (long-armed), the founder of Moscow, who was the Prince of Kiev and Suzdal, died in 1157.
Tverskaya street begins at the heart of Moscow, at Manezhnaya Square, which is next to the Red Square, and runs up to the north of Moscow, through Pushkinskaya Square, and ends at Mayakovskaya Square. There are lots of shops and restaurants in Tverskaya, and in its lanes there are many theatres and cinemas: MHAT named after Tchekhov in Kamergersky, Musical Theatre of Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko in Big Dmitrovka, Satire Theatre and Mossovet Theatre in Mayakovskaya. Very fancy places! Young moscovites like Pushkinskaya Ploschad, where a big cinema is located. Kodak Kinomir cinema is close to Pushkinskaya.
