Re: crossing roads in russian cities

In the large cities in Russia, there are certain streets that you have to use underground pedestrian crossings for--it's both illegal and physically impossible (or a death wish) to cross any other way. The main downtown street in Moscow, Tverskaya, has lots of these crossings, because it is something like 6-8 lanes wide and perennially choked with traffic. Look for signs with a picture of a little stylized staircase going down. Sometimes the metro entrance and the underground passageway are the same thing, but sometimes the steps just lead to an underground passage to the other side of the street.

Secret "modesty"

by xenia

The first tower of modern Moscow Kremlin was built in 1485 by Peter Fryazin. Tower and gates were named "Taynitskaya" (Secret) according to secret well under the tower. That well should supplied Kremlin under the siege with water. Tower height 38,4 m.
Tower built in XV century was lost. In 1770 it was destroied, because Kremlin Palace was erecting. But already in 1771-1773 tower was reconstructed according to measurements by M. Kazakoff. So the "oldest" tower is "newdone". And in 1930 gates and secret places were bricked up.
At the end of XVII century all main Kremlin towers were raised with high hipped roofs. Taynitskaya Tower was overbuilt too, but very-very "modest". Interesting, why main gate- and fire-tower of the south side is so low? (No, no, bricks were not stolen:)
The case is that ancients laid streets of Zamoskvorechye (Behind-Moscow-River) so way that their prospects were closed either Pokrovsky cathedral, or bell-tower of Ivan the Great. Because old builder didn't built up Taynitskaya Tower "strongly", it shouldn't prevent "Ivan-Bell-Ringer".

Lubyanka

by kris-t

Lubyanka Square in downtown Moscow is the site of the site of the Lubyanka head-quarters of the KGB.
KGB directors from Lavrentiy Beriya to Yuriy Andropov had their office on the third floor of the building.
The Lubyanka actually consists of three buildings (each takes a block). The center of the square was dominated centre by a statue of Felix Dzerzhinsky, founder of the first communist secret police, the Cheka.

Like many others, the statue was removed in August 1991.

Bolshoi theatre

by luiggi

This oldest Moscow theatre was built in 1825 to refuge the troupe of a burnt opera theatre in Arbat street. The world famous operas of Russian composers started there. Anton Rubinshtein, Pyotr Chaykovsky, Serghey Rakhmaninov conducted at the premieres of their operas there. Fyodor Shaliapin, Antonina Nezhdanova, Ivan Kozlovsky, Serghey Lemeshev song on its stage. Galina Ulanova, Maya Plisetskaya danced. Nowadays the theatre suffers bad times: it's famous not for its repertoire novelties, but for squabbles and scandalous dismissals. But the building is still the most theatre building in the world. In the theatre the Beethoven hall opens this season for the public.
