Tverskaya Street (Ulitsa Tverskaya) Tours

star-5
1 Review
Tverskaya Street (Ulitsa Tverskaya)
Tverskaya Street (Ulitsa Tverskaya) is Moscow’s version of Main Street, running uphill from near the north end of Red Square out toward St Petersburg. The street existed as early as the 12th century and connected Moscow with the cities of Tver and Novgorod. It was the center of Moscow’s social life in the 17th and 18th centuries and was often used by the Russian tsars as a promenade through the city to their residence in the Kremlin. By the end of the 19th century, grand residences had been largely replaced by commercial buildings in a mix of styles, and during the Stalin era, many churches and historical buildings were torn down to widen the street and to make room for large apartment blocks and government buildings.

Today, Tverskaya Street is the most expensive shopping street in all of Russia, and in 2008, it was the third most expensive street in the world for real estate. In addition to being a high-end shopping mecca, it is a center of nightlife, culture and entertainment. On or near the street, you can find the Yermolova Theater, the Museum of Traditional Russian Art, the Moscow Contemporary Art Museum, the Moscow Town Hall and monuments to Pushkin and the founder of Moscow, Prince Yuri Dolgoruky.

Practical Info

If you’re staying in the center of Moscow, Tverskaya Street may be an easy walk from your hotel. If not, you can take the Metro to any of the Okhotny Ryad, Teatralnaya, Tversakaya or Pushkinskaya stations.
Address: Tverskaya Street, Moscow, Russia

We'll explore with you one of the oldest and main streets in Moscow - Tverskaya. Bright, magnificent, with sublime Stalinist deportment, always vivid and busy, this street doesn't know what rest is. It always buzzes, whether looking forward to a crazy friday party or rushing to work. But once you turn to the narrow side streets, you will hear silence and see an unhurried lifestyle of the locals. You'll also discover many secrets, architectural masterpieces and cool design concepts. Some of the buildings here were growing up, some - completely vanished, others - were moved in record-breaking time. Tverskaya is a mix of different epochs; here you can find old churches that outlasted hard times of religious persecution in the USSR, a gothic castle, the first McDonald's in Russia, look in the window of "The English Club" (fashionable men's club in the 19th century)...and much more. Well, it's a great tour for those who are in Moscow for the first time (and not only)!

Christmas and New Year’s in Moscow

Christmas and New Year’s in Moscow

Are you excited for the holidays? We are! One of the best places for this season is in Moscow, Russia. Let me give you a little background information. We have different names to celebrate according to our traditions. In this part of the world, Christmas is tied with New Year’s, so the two holidays are in alliance with each other. In Russia, a Christmas tree is called a yolka, which is a New Year's tree. Russians are great on gift-giving and big family feasts, so instead of New Year’s fairs, they have Christmas fairs. The Christmas Fair is one of the biggest festivals in the whole country. The Biggest Festival Russians Hold is “Journey into Christmas,” which holds old-fashioned Russian traditions and new ideas for all ages. The best part is that entry is free! In Moscow, each district from December 18th till January 14th takes part in a fantastic festival! There will be everything from concerts to street shows, traditional food, and fun contests.
