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.

  • As soon as you leave the station Tretyakovskaya Metro station, you find yourself in Zamoskvorechye district. Even at the outlet hanging stand, where it says that this place merchants. In his time of Zamoskvorechye wrote a great Russian playwright A.n. Ostrovsky. The Sorrow is the House where he was born. Also, here you can find the Tretyakov Gallery, a small theatre and House of writers. The area is quiet and calm. When searched for the Tretyakov Gallery, we got lost. Asked the local, they quietly suggested. Zamoskvorechye district-this atmosphere of old Moscow. I advise you to visit this wonderful area.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive.

When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
