Tverskaya Street in Moscow is considered to be one of the oldest streets. Historians argue that even in the 12 century there was the road to Tver. It is well known that in the 15th century the road connecting Moscow with not only Tver′û, but also by the Novgorodians and generally Northwest regions of Russia. In place the TWer in those times there was a Sloboda, which settled people from Tver and Novgorod.
Since 16 century the street was extended to the earthen berm and from that time on began to settle and build the best representatives of Moscow's birth. Also shops began to appear-a life on Tverskaya bubbled and boiled over with. In the 18 century Tver was the main street in Moscow. It was the home of the Governor General, the English club. In 1770 was built the famous Eliseevsky shop. Of course, everything was reconstructed on several occasions and by the middle of the 20 century the street had purchased one kind with change reached our days.
In 1932 year Street was renamed Gorky Street, capturing not only the Presence, but 1 Tverskaya-yamskaya str. Street. Peshkov Street-so called this street in the 50 's and 80 's. Tverskaya and in Soviet times, has not lost its status.
In 1990 year Street returned its name and today it is the main street of the capital.
Photo of Tverskaya street have done since the advent of the cameras. On the Internet you can find a lot of old photos of Tver and is really interesting. True night photos of the time you will not find that understandable-technique in those days was not so perfect. Tverskaya at night is beautiful, as befits a main street of the capital. From the Kremlin to triumph square small distance, but all solid Street attractions, where you can learn the history of Moscow, and night lights home and the Street makes a great target for a photo illustrating Moscow.
In General, today is used to illustrate Moscow multiple objects-the Kremlin, St .Basil's Cathedral, Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the building of Moscow State University and Moscow-city. Streets and Tverskaya in particular as something used less, which in my opinion does not deservedly and Tverskaya Street, especially night no less beautiful object to illustrate.
