What nevertheless beautiful names of districts and streets were given in old Moscow: Tverskaya, Arbat, Taganka, Kuznetsky Most, Zemlyanoi Val and even Krasnaya Ploschad.Vo all cities - the name of Lenin, and the name of Lenin. I can compare, by the beauty of the name, only the Champs Elysees in Paris and Khreshchatyk in Kiev.

Prestigious area, the center of Moscow, after all. And the prison is sung in many songs, for example: "Taganka! I'm your prisoner forever ... quot;
On Tagansky hillthat when Yauza flowed into the Moscow River in ancient times (even before Yury Dolgoruky founded the fortress of the Kiev metropolis on the neighboring Borovitsky hill), there was a pagan temple. It was located closer to Yauza - on Shvivaya Hill (north-western slope of the hill). Now in its place is the Athos Compound.
In order to get to know Tagansky Hill and Shvivaya Hill better, I invite you to visit a virtual Walk-excursion.

Luzhkov decided, since Rome has a metro station quot; Moskovskayaquot ;, let us have quot; Romanskaya)
