Here is one of the areas of Moscow, made pedestrian by Sobyanin: Stoleshnikov lane, Tverskaya square and Tverskoy passage. I think, I finally realized his motives. He just didn’t like the parking near the monument to Yuri Dolgorukiy in front of his windows.
After removing it he understood, that it’s really better without cars here and that was the beginning…
The short Tverskoy passage.
Tverskaya square with the monument to the founder of Moscow.
Annunciation Church in Shubino (1703).
House of the mayor.
И Stoleshnikov lane itself
The street looks good without unending ranges of tables and umbrellas. And I especially love the lack of people in the morning.
