Zamoskvorechie, Moscow
(4.8/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
Zamoskvorechye District is a district of Central Administrative Okrug of the federal city of Moscow, Russia. Population:The district contains the eastern half of historical Zamoskvorechye area, and the territories of Zatsepa Street and Paveletsky Rail Terminal south of the Garden Ring. The boundary between Yakimanka and Zamoskvorechye districts follows Balchug Street and Bolshaya Ordynka Street, Korovy Val and Mytnaya streets .HistoryOld MuscovyThis section is based on P.V.Sytin's History of Moscow Streets''''Territories on the right (southern) bank of Moskva River, now known as Zamoskvorechye, were first colonized in the 14th century. Two river crossings, west and east of the Moscow Kremlin's walls, provide access to roads which originally continued south to Kaluga and Serpukhov, and served as main axes of settlement. Bolshaya Ordynka Street (Serpukhov road), currently the western boundary of the district, is named after Orda, Golden Horde, and was initially home to the Tatar community. Regular floods and the north-south migration of Moskva river bed limited construction to a narrow, 500-700 meter wide strip of land between Ordynka and Tatarskaya streets. The development of Zamoskvorechye followed the eastward expansion of the city on the northern bank, thus eastern Zamoskvorechye is younger than the western Yakimanka District. For example, present-day Pyatnitskaya Street emerged early in the 15th century, when the expansion of Moscow Kremlin moved the wooden Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge one block eastward.

  • One of my favourite parts of Moscow when it comes to architecture, mainly because of its uniqueness. It's hard to find region of the city with more old-style buildings and no communist-style architect...  more »
