Tverskaya Street (Ulitsa), Moscow

(3.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Take in the apex of Moscow's entertainment, nightlife, shopping, and dining with a stroll along Tverskaya Street (Ulitsa). Often said to be one of the most expensive streets in Europe, it is home to many of the city's exclusive hotels, restaurants, and shops. The street dates back to the 12th century, and during the imperial period was the route by which the tsars returned to their Kremlin residence from the northern capital. Keep an eye out for the three examples of Stalinist architecture from the 1930s: the constructivist Izvestia Building in Pushkin Square, the modernist Central Telegraph Building, and the "black cube" of the Lenin Institute in Tverskaya Square. Walking this street is preferable to driving, as traffic can make traveling it very challenging.

  • The center of Moscow is certainly characterized by this road, very long but not boring. Depending on the part where you are you can have different feelings and maybe conflicting, with chaotic traffic to an artery with bars, restaurants, hotels and shops. The buildings are architecturally characterized by this or that particular and a half day walk also allows those interested in the subject, an undeniable inner remuneration that may be lacking for others. Arbat is more engaging, as well as smaller in proportion; but the Tverskaya is a road that has to be seen also as an attraction in its own right.

  • It was recently renovated and all decorated with lights and installations for the New Year celebration. Have a walk there if you're around from Pushkinskaya sq. down to the Kremlin - you will not regr...  more »
  • Grand Avenue that runs between Pushkin Square and the Kremlin complex, in it there are a lot of buildings highlighting the Mayor's Office, theatres, cinemas, shops, restaurants... Opposite the Mayor's Office is a pretty square where lies the equestrian monument to the founder of the Yury Dolgoruky city and here placed flowers and Easter eggs that look great both day and nighttime lighting. Personally I would recommend you visit Yeliseev completo Food Hall (Yeliseevskiy Gastronom) which is a supermarket located in an old mansion of the aristocracy (very near Pushkin Square); interesting thing lies in the magnificent place: ornamentation, pictures, lamps etc. To buy: there is a mall "subway" is located opposite the Kremlin. Tips of transport in Moscow: preferably use the meter and if you need to take a Taxi never accept payment with measured service (taximeter) already that is very expensive! Enjoy Moscow. LIFE... it's a trip!
