Moscow - Presnya (Chapter)
This is the Presnya chapter from Lonely Planet's Moscow guidebook.
The vast, diverse Presnya district spans the centuries, taking in 19th-century residential areas, 20th-century skyscrapers and 21st-century development. The district’s attractions are equally varied, ranging from traditional venues like the zoo and the planetarium, to the fantastical (and unique) Ice Sculpture Gallery.
