Moscow the Old Arbat street.

I would like to tell about one very interesting street located in the center of Moscow. My town is big and beautiful. The streets of the town are long and straight. The most famous street in Moscow lies to the West of the Kremlin. I love to walk on Arbat Street. Old Arbat is the most picturesque pedestrian street in Moscow. The first mention of the Arbat was in 1493 as a road leading from the Moscow Kremlin to Smolensk. The Arbat located between Arbatskie Vorota Square and Smolenskaya Square is one of the most famous streets in Moscow. The Arbat is also one of the symbols of old Moscow, which was celebrated in poems, novels, songs and movies. Nowadays the Arbat is the name of the pedestrian street, but actually the Arbat is the whole district of Moscow.
Originally, the Arbat was the place where merchants and craftspeople lived, but by the end of the 18th century they were replaced by the noblemen. In the middle of the 19th century the Arbat turned into the prestigious and fashionable place. The richest and the most powerful Russian families preferred to have their mansions here. The Arbat was a peaceful and quiet district where the relatively small mansions in the Empire style and wooden houses surrounded by gardens were put up. The Arbat did not feature large shops. The area was popular among the doctors, lawyers, writers and poets. Pushkin himself lived here with his wife in house number 53 (the building has since been turned into a museum dedicated to the poet). Originally the street formed part of an important trade route and was home to a large number of craftsmen.
I adore this street. Pick a sunny day to stroll down Arbat, since the most interesting things happen when the sun is out. I like to walk on Arbat street and admire its beauty and tranquility, artists, paintings, numerous shops and cafes.
