Nikolskaya Street is a pedestrian street in the Kitay-Gorod of Moscow. It connects Red Square and Lubyanka Square. It was known as the Street of the 25th of October between 1935 and 1990.The north side of the street is lined with historic buildings, such as the Kazan Cathedral, the Old Mint, Monastery of the Holy Saviour, Greek Monastery of St. Nicholas, and the former Holy Synod Printing Offices, Russia's first publishing house. The south side contains the GUM and the Dormition Church, an example of the Naryshkin Baroque underwritten by the Saltykov boyar family in 1691.Before Stalin's reconstruction of downtown Moscow, the street led to the Vladimir Gates of the Kitay-Gorod wall which used to dominate the Lubyanka Square. Another Naryshkin Baroque church, dating from 1694, adjoined the gate, as did the more recent chapel of St. Pantaleon with a large cupola. All these buildings were razed in 1934.

  • This street passes through the entire China-Town, connecting the red and Lubjanskuju area. Opposite the streets are just the Kremlin gate Nikolskii named so in honour of Saint Nicholas. Hence the name of the street. On the street a lot of wonderful old buildings (gum, the former building of the synodal printing house, Ferrejn pharmacy, etc.). Pedestrian street. In winter it is decorated with beautiful lights of thousands of bulbs. In the summer you can sit on a bench and marvel.
