Tverskaya Street is all about history and amazing architecture. It is the central and the longest street of Moscow with lots of tourist attractions, from the daunting grey building of the State Duma to newly reconstructed Triumfalnaya Square. If you don’t have much time, here’s a short list of things you simply can’t miss out:
buying Russian delicacies and handmade sweets in Eliseev’s Food Hall, the breathtaking Neoclassical building. It was once home of Princess Zinaida Aleksandrovna Volkonskaya and still is a royal treat for your eyes;
visiting Pushkin Square, named after the outstanding Russian poet, with the monument to him. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll participate in one of many festivals taking place there;
attending the State Central Museum of Contemporary History housed in a Neoclassical mansion that was built in the late 1790s. It is one of the world’s largest museums of this kind having more than 1.8 million objects in its collection.
