  • Excellent place for walks. A huge variety of restaurants and attractions (from theaters and museums to quests) makes this street a good venue for the weekend. Beautiful surroundings and proximity to the Kremlin makes summer turns it into a photo of the street.

  • Walking part of the street starts from the square. Minina and goes up to PL. Bitter. Start the walk can be on either side. Passed by the Kremlin, you can relax and eat in restaurants and cafes on Pokrovka, photographed with a cheerful goat, Yevgeny Evstigneevym from Drama, against the backdrop of the most beautiful buildings of the State. In stores on Pokrovka has everything-food, clothes, souvenirs, books, etc. Bitter you can go on the subway or buses-minibuses in any part of the city.
