Moscow - Zamoskvorechie (PDF Chapter)
This is the Zamoskvorechie chapter from Lonely Planet’s Moscow guidebook.
The core of Zamoskvorechie is squeezed between ul Pyatnitskaya and ul Bolshaya Polyan-ka, with the district’s gem, Tretyakov Gallery, in the very middle. A pedestrian bridge across the canal leads to Bolotny Island, home to the fledgling hipster cluster of Red October.
- stroll, cycle, rollerblade, dance, drink, play pétanque – be as active or as lazy as you wish in the wonderfully gentrified and iconic Gorky Park
- admire the Tretyakov Gallery’s superb collection of Russian icons, the cutting social com-mentary of the Peredvizhniki (Wanderers) and the prerevolutionary decadence of the Symbolists
- watch the day and short summer night go by at the city’s best open-terrace bar, Bar Strelka
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
