Vorobyovskaya Embankment

Be that as it may, Grand Duke Vasily III built a country palace here. The “quietest” Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich also liked to relax here. At this place, Alexander I decided to erect a grandiose Cathedral of Christ the Savior in honor of the victory over Bonaparte, but only the embezzlement turned out to be grandiose. As a result, the architect was exiled to Vyatka, it was decided to build the temple elsewhere, and the builders' barracks eventually turned into a transit prison that had stood for almost a century. At the beginning of the 20th century, Vorobyovskaya Embankment became a place for Muscovites to celebrate. And shortly before the outbreak of the Great Patriotic War, this area was annexed to the urban territory. Then, from 1949 to 1952, the building of Moscow State University was built here, without which it is impossible to imagine the appearance of Moscow today.

Vorobyovskaya Embankment is a favorite vacation spot for those who do not like hustle and bustle and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is separated from the city by the green Vorobyovy Gory massif. In summer, people sunbathe on the grass, rollerblading paths, skateboards and bicycles. And, they say, they don't even interfere with each other. There are many skiers here in winter. There is a ski slope from Vorobyovy Gory, and you can climb up to the observation deck by cable car, which is open in summer. The promenade is completely pedestrian. From Vorobyovy Gory metro station, you can go down stairs. There is a pier for tourist boats, trips on them are very popular with vacationers. Vorobyovskaya Embankment ends at the Luzhnetsky two-tier bridge. This bridge is unique in that cars run along the upper level, and Vorobyovy Gory metro station is located on the lower level right on the bridge.
