Flood-gate Embankment

This embankment, along the Moskva River and in the heart of the oldest Moscow district may seem small, yet it opens such beautiful views of historic buildings and modern architectural masterpieces that it is certainly worthy of every attention. There is a pedestrian bridge connecting the embankment with Riverside Towers, a modern business complex housing the Moscow International House of Music and Swissotel Krasnye Holmy Hotel, one of the tallest hotels in Moscow. The flood-gate at the place of the modern embankment, together with a dam and a water channel, was constructed after a major flood of 1783 that destroyed many buildings in Zamoskvorechye.

Big Moskvoretsky Bridge

The biggest (and perhaps the oldest) bridge in Moscow, it offers a beautiful view of the Kremlin, the Spassky Gate and the Vasilyevsky Descent. The place has been used as a bridge since 1498, when the first floating bridge appeared here, and was later replaced by a wooden one. The latter burnt down in 1870, but the modern reinforced bridge was only built in 1938. In 1987 the place became world-famous when the German athlete Matthias Rust landed here on his small single-engine aircraft.

Krasnopresnenskaya Embankment

This 3 km long embankment, built of concrete and granite in 1770-s, is an excellent place for strolling, cycling, roller skating and skateboarding. It’s never much crowded or noisy, which makes it a perfect spot for romantic walks, relaxing by the water and enjoying the city lights. The embankment’s history is long and fascinating, filled with contrasting stories of trade and business success embodied in breathtaking skyscrapers and bloody massacres that happened long time ago.

Ovchinnikovskaya Embankment

Located in Zamoskvorechye, one of the oldest districts of Moscow, the Ovchinnikovskaya Embankment is filled with the spirit of Russian enterprise and merchantry. It was here that sheepskin (‘ovchina’) craftsmen used to settle back in the 17th century, giving the name to the area. The embankment opens a wonderful view of the old streets and ancient buildings of the 17th-18th centuries and is certainly worth of your late evening visit.

A relatively new bridge next to the Neskuchny Garden and Gorky Park, it has become a popular attraction both for Moscow residents and visitors.

Yakimanskaya Embankment

Best for unhurried romantic walks along the river, the Yakimanskaya Embankment is located in Moscow’s historical center and surrounded by ancient buildings of 17th-19th centuries. Here you’ll find the Golutvinskaya Manufactory, Nikola Temple in Golutvin, worker barracks, residential houses, and luxurious merchant estates that once belonged to the rich Moscow families of the Levins, Rylovs and Kotovs.

Pedestrian zone at Krymskaya Embankment

With its nice and modern pedestrian zone, the Crimean Embankment looks splendid with luminous benches, cozy cafes, fountains and a vernissage. The latter is smothered in marigolds, petunias, ornamental and wild flowers, and surrounded by maples and European lime trees. Another hit of the place is the alley of dry fountains with illuminated streams playing from under the pavement. Closer to the Yakimanskaya Embankment there’s a bike rental pavilion with a little viewing platform.
