    Str. Bolshaya Pokrovskaya, or at fabric Rublyovo "jargon", "Pokra", stretches from the square. Lyadov to the center of the city. Minin and Pozharsky. Walking into the street is approximately 2 km, so go fast step is not a problem for 15-20 minutes, pleasure-40 minutes-1:00, depending on the ljubopytnosti passer-by. If you go down the street (to Minin and Pozharsky square) you can see main tower Kremlin (Dmitrovskuju), because the street itself is being held at a slight incline. At Large is located Near a large number of cafes (in summer with summer verandas), sculptures (bench bloggers, zero degrees Kelvin, goat, which like all photographed riding, etc.) and attractions (for example, the incredible beauty of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, drama, etc.). In holidays (city day, victory day) with Large Pokrovskaya perfectly visible salute. The middle of the street, cross the tram tracks on which you can drive not only the usual, but also on the retro tram (with or without tour), next to the city loop and excellent-down on the street. Christmas, to the River station (fare at the time of writing reviews 16.08.2017 drawn up 35 roubles). You can get any kind of transport: underground (art.

    Street Street. A number of entertainment monuments without captions, many traders and singers. Sorry, couldn't find any institution standing for dinner-no reviews, no outwardly like nothing, and where better-have gone would have walked deeper into the city for something worthwhile.
