Moika river embankment

It is possible that the panorama opening from the embankment has served as a source of inspiration for many artists, because the architectural ensembles [of the Champ de Mars] (http://kudago.com/spb/place/marsovo-pole/), St. Isaac's and [Palace] (http://kudago.com/spb/place/dvorcovaya-ploshad/) squares are really an incomparable sight. It seems that a bygone era comes to life here and the events of the past days appear before your eyes.

**Moika River Embankment**, along with Petrovskaya Embankment, is the same age as St. Petersburg. It winds after the water surface, dividing the historic center of the city into two parts, sweeps under the canvas of Nevsky Prospekt and rests on the embankment of the Fontanka River. Once this embankment, like most others, was completely wooden, but now it is reinforced with granite and a forged fence with geometric patterns, and massive bridges are built over it — Garden, Stable, Green, Red, Blue and others.

One of the main attractions of the embankment, which is included in the program of most excursions in the city center, is the famous [A. S. Pushkin] (http://kudago.com/spb/place/muzej-kvartira-s-pushkina-na-mojke/), in which the poet lived the rest of his life and in which he died after a fatal shot. Here, in house No. 12, Alexander Sergeevich finished writing The Captain's Daughter and wrote The Story of Peter the Great.
