Announcement of events for the next week: cinema-Moscow :)

Dear friends, we smoothly cross the equator of spring. This week we have 2 lectures and 4 walks. Already today (04/14), we will talk in the lecture hall of the Museum of Moscow about how it was not easy for filmmakers of the 70s and 80s to show Moscow 40-50s in their films. Tomorrow (April 15) in the Reader we will sink below the ground and without getting up from the chairs, we will drive along the Ring from Prospect Mira to Kiev, noting all the most interesting things along the way. On Friday (April 17), together with "Moscow which is not" we will examine Chistye Prudy. And on weekends, in a company with a club of walking tours, I walk around Moscow and take a walk around the Mius, the Patriarch and the alley near Arbat.

Most excursions in Moscow take place within the Garden Ring. But this does not mean that behind the Garden Ring the capital has nothing to boast about! On the spot: it is in such - not too studied and familiar - places that the most curious and unexpected discoveries are made. Miuses is one of the most interesting places outside the Garden Ring. For a long time there was a large field between Tverskaya Sloboda of coachmen and New Dmitrov Sloboda. It was only at the end of the 19th century that Miuses began to actively build up public buildings. A park of equestrian railways, a maternity hospital, and various educational institutions, which now have a century-old history, appeared here. The architecture of Mius harmoniously combines vivid examples of industrial and civil architecture of the late XIX - early XX century, masterpieces of the Soviet avant-garde and interesting sculptural groups.

There is no such resident in Moscow whoever wanders at least once in the alleys around the famous Patriarch's Ponds. Foreigners are surprised: “Patriarch's Ponds - there is only one pond!” In the XVII century there were several of them, they were famous for their crystal clearness, and the fish of the Moscow Patriarch was supplied with fish caught in the ponds. However, over the years, the ponds abandoned and forgot about them. Only after the fire of 1812, one of them was cleaned, put in order and smashed around the square. In the XIX century, the area of ​​the Patriarchal Ponds was settled by students and young people: the fun was here from dawn to dawn. But even today, in the vicinity of the Patriarch's Ponds, you will not be bored: here you will meet beautiful mansions of the modern era, and the “techerzy” of the early 20th century, and the wooden houses of old Moscow.Do not forget that the Patriarch's Ponds - one of the most literary places of the capital.

Prechistenka and Arbat - the most famous and popular streets of the capital. And this applies equally to the Muscovites, and to the guests of the city. Arbat has long been the main symbol of Moscow: they know about it all over Russia and far beyond its borders. Prechistenka is perhaps the most aristocratic street in the city, on which a huge number of lordly and even noblemen’s buildings are preserved.The lanes between Prechistenka and Arbat are never included in the list of the most popular tourist routes, they are rarely mentioned in guidebooks. And in vain! It was here that the Old Moscow city beauties hid. Majestic pre-revolutionary tenement houses and cozy Moscow mansions, Masonic symbols and brave knights, ancient churches and architectural masterpieces of the Soviet avant-garde await you between Prechistenka and Arbat.

• where the Moscow noblemen Aksakovs and Turgenevs lived;
