Moscow Walk

I didn't have quite a lot to do, so I've decided to take a walk, and - strange, don't know why - took my camera with me. Here is what I've found around my place.
Antique town houses in modernist style at Povarskay street

Image

and new-Renaissance.

Image

The monument to Bunin. In 1917 Ivan Andreevich used to live not far from this place and wrote his "Damned days" (Okayannye dni). There's an elm on the left from the statue, it's about two hundred years old.

Image


And there's a classic town house across the street. They say it used to be musical salon of princess Shakhovskaya here.... Nowadays it's just a restaurant.

Image

Then I turned to Nozhovy bystreet (bystreet of knives). Two pseudo-Gothic pearls are here. If what Bulgakov says it's true - Margarita lived in one of this houses. In this?

Image

Or - maybe - in this?

Image

The first one is the embassy of Georgia today, the second one is the spanish (or chlian) ambassador's residence.
And in the perspective of Stolovy bystreet you can see such a nice view.


Image

However, the Nozhove bystreet has it's dominant.

Image

By the way, here's a question to dear misters travellers - what age is this belltower?:)

And belongs this belltower to church of Great Ascension.
The most remarkable in this place is that Pushkin and Goncharova had their wedding here.

Image

But I too hurried to leave Nozhovy bystreet.The best monument of war stands (or hangs?)
here. it's name "Live up to the memory of fallen ".
It's author, Daniel Mitlyansky, has graduated from school in 1941,
they were four, friends and classmates. He's the only one who survived.
And the monument is mounted to the wall of his school.


Image

Quite near from it - A.V.Suvorov's parishional church - Feodor Studit.

Image

And the last thing - the Luzhkov's Moscow landmark, but not the most dreadful.
The jubilee fountain "Pushkin and Nathalie" that was dedicated to the 200th
anniversary of the Poet. Luzhkov tried to stand a drink from this fountain to Putin,
but, frnakly, I don't remember exactly what did it with:)

Image

All that took me about half an hour. And how many things are still around to see.
