What a fun place to shop, eat and watch street performers. Follow it from the metro up to the Kremlin.

You can find people selling small stuffs, souvenirs or some painting along the street during spring, summer and autumn when the weather is good. Many good restaurants located along the street.

Its same like Bauman street in Kazan or a main street in Chelyabinsk, reflects the culture and ambiance of the eastern Russia crossing the Volga river. A small town with good food and ambiance on the street, a good evening walk crossing the street

A vibrant area where everyone enjoys whatever they like- if is an ice cream, a lemonade, a pub or the amazing street performers! The place is full of people coming up and down to and from Kremlin.

- Mud, garbage, nowhere to sit for rest, leads to nowhere. - Some nice buildings of the pre-soviet era.
