Moscow - Zamoskvorechie (Chapter)

5th Edition Mar 2012

This is the Zamoskvorechie chapter from Lonely Planet’s Moscow guidebook.

Zamoskvorechie – its name meaning ‘Beyond Moscow River’ – stretches south from the bank opposite the Kremlin. This dynamic district is the site of Moscow’s premier traditional art museum, the Tretyakov, as well as the capital’s most exciting contemporary art and entertainment complex in the former Red October chocolate factory. Green Gorky Park lies further south along the Moscow River, while two ancient fortress-monasteries guard the city’s southern flank.


•    spending a half-day at the Tretyakov Gallery, admiring the superb collection of Russian icons, the cutting social commentary of the Peredvizhniki (‘Wanderers’), the whimsy of the Symbolists, and other prerevolutionary art
•    maps
•    catching a concert, film or event at the Strelka Institute in the former Red October chocolate factory
•    transport
•    seeing the fallen heroes of the Soviet era at Art Muzeon Sculpture Park
•    restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Explore: Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating and Drinking & Nightlife.
