Moscow - Basmanny & Taganka (Chapter)

5th Edition Mar 2012

This is the Basmanny & Taganka chapter from Lonely Planet’s Moscow guidebook.

Basmanny and Taganka flank the little Yauza River in the eastern part of the city. The most central part of the Basmanny district is a bustling, atmospheric neighbourhood, packed with shops, restaurants and cafes. Many of the industrial buildings in the outskirts now house innovative postmodern galleries and clubs. South of the Yauza, Taganskaya pl is a monster intersection that can be difficult to navigate, but the district is home to a few unusual sights such as Bunker-42 and the Museum of the Russian Icon, as well as a couple of ancient, atmospheric monasteries.
