Ulitsa Vozdvizhenka and Ulitsa Novy Arbat.
Ulitsa Arbat.
  • Arbat is one the oldest streets in Moscow. Its name comes from the Arabic rabad which means the suburbs. The street came into being in the XIV - XV centuries. For most Muscovites Arbat has a broader meaning, it also embodies the neighboring side streets and court-yards which have kept a special Moscow spirit. In house number 53 there is Pushkin' s apartment in Arbat museum, where the great poet lived with his young wife three happy honeymoons. In the mid 80s of last century Arbat became the first pedestrian street in Moscow. There appeared a stone pavement, loans and decorative streetlamps. Nowadays Arbat is as popular with the guests of the capital as Red square. There souvenirs and hand-made articles are sold, street singers and musicians sing and play, artists draw portraits.

  • Cathedral of Christ the Savior (Khram Khrista Spasitelya).
    The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is an architectural monument with a unique fate. It was built in 1883 in a so called Russian-Byzantine style from the design by architect Konstantin Ton. It was built with people's donations. In 1931 the Cathedral was exploded by Stalin's personal order to make way for a huge Palace of Soviets in its place; however its unfinished foundation pit was turned into an open swimming pool Moscow in 1958. In 1994 it was decided to reconstruct the Cathedral. The building recreation was based on old photos, drawings and sketches, but using modern technologies. At the end of the XX century it took only six years to reconstruct the Cathedral while its original construction lasted 45 years. On August 19, 2000 the Cathedral was sanctified.

  • Arkhangelskoe.
    On the Moscow River a short distance west of Moscows outer ring road is one of the grandest estates in the region, Arkhangelskoe. Unhappily, the palace has been under restoration and closed for years, and a big question mark still hangs over the reopening date. However, the beautiful grounds are worth a visit in any case. A grandson of Dmitry Golitsyn, a statesman under Peter the Great, started work on a palace in the 1780s but lost interest and sold it all to Prince Nikolay Yusupov, one of the richest Russians of that time or since, who filled it with his treasures.
     
  • Novodevichy Convent (branch of the State Historical Museum) 
    Founded in 1524, it was conceived as a monument to the conquest of Smolensk by Vasily III. Its location at the bend of the Moskva River opposite the Vorobyovy Hills indicates that it was also important as a stronghold protecting the approaches to the capital. The Smolensk Cathedral is known for its splendid iconostasis completed between 1683 and 1685 - the work of court painters headed by the famous Fyodor Zubov. Mighty walls 870 metres long and 11 metres high, with 12 towers, surround the entire territory of the Tonvent, covering about 5 hectares. Architectural and artistic composition of the Tonvent ensemble is embellished by a very beautiful bell tower that is commonly called "the Bride of Ivan the Great".
