An ancient road from the Kremlin to Russia's major cities - first Tver and St. Petersburg - Tverskaya has always been one of Russia's thoroughfares. It originated as a trade route and from the 18th century came to be used for the conduct of royal processions from the new northern capital.
Today Tverskaya is increasingly a display window of Moscow, its formerly Soviet facades have been filled over the last years with a famous boutiques, shops and hotels. Tverskaya Square with the statue of Yuri Dolgoruky, Moscow?s founder, is in its center. The statue was erected in 1954 to commemorate the 800th anniversary of Moscow. Moscow Government Building stands right in front of the statue.
