Strastnoy Boulevard

Strastnoy Boulevard is considered the widest and most picturesque section of the city in the area of the Boulevard Ring. However, few people know that by historical standards, quite recently, at the beginning of the 19th century, it was nothing more than a narrow alley running between two rows of trees and connecting Tverskaya street and Petrovskie Vorota.

A huge contribution to the development of Strastnoy Boulevard was made by the famous Moscow landlady E. A. Naryshkin, on whose initiative the city authorities laid out a large square along it, later connected to the garden that belonged to the Novo-Catherine Hospital. Thanks to the efforts of this woman, nowadays Strastnoy Boulevard, its central alley and side paths, evoke an association with a wonderful ancient park.

Among the modern sights of the boulevard, we can highlight the monument to Sergei Vasilyevich Rachmaninov, erected in 1999 by sculptors Oleg Konstantinovich Komov and Andrey Nikolaevich Kovalchuk. The monument to Vladimir Semenovich Vysotsky by sculptor Gennady Raspopov deserves special attention.
