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 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.
