Known as Gorky Street between 1935 and 1990, it runs from the Manege Square through the Tverskoy District and the crossing with the Boulevard Ring, known as Pushkin Square, to the Garden Ring. The route continues further as First Tverskaya-Yamskaya Street, Leningradsky Prospekt and Leningradskoye Shosse.
The street has a rich history that starts in the 12th century. Its importance for the medieval city was immense, as it connected Moscow with its superior, and later chief rival, Tver.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, Tverskaya Street was renowned as the centre of Moscow's social life. The nobility considered it fashionable to settle in this district. Among the mansions dating from the reign of Catherine the Great are the residence of the mayor of Moscow and the English Club . The mayor's residence among a number of other historic buildings was moved about 14 meters for the widening of the Gorky street during Stalin's time. In the square before it stands a statue of the legendary founder of Moscow, Yuri Dolgoruky, erected for the city's 800th anniversary. The street was reconstructed several times and represents a mixture of historical styles. A prominent building is National Hotel that appeared in1901, whose interior is the landmark of Russian art.
Tverskaya Street is the most expensive shopping street in Moscow and Russia. This center of the city's nightlife and entertainment is especially beautiful at night and offers the wealth of attractions.
Besides, the street is particularly beautiful on Victory Day’s parade. I hope that I was able to convince you that Tverskaya Street is one of the nicest areas to walk around in Moscow.
