Pushkin Square

Pushkin Square

Pushkin Square in Moscow, historically known as "Strastnaya Square" and renamed for Alexander Pushkin in 1937, is located at the junction of the Boulevard Ring and the Tverskaya Street, 2km northwest of the Kremlin . It is not only one of the busiest city squares in Moscow, but also one of the busiest in the world.

At the center of the square is a famous statue of Pushkin, funded by public conscription and opened by Ivan Turgenev and Feodor Dostoevsky in 1880. In 1950 Stalin had the statue moved to the other side of the Tverskaya Street, where the Monastery of Christ's Passions had formerly stood.
