Chistoprudnyi Boulevard

Chistoprudnyi Boulevard

Chistoprudnyi Boulevard, at 822 meters, passes through Myasnitsky Gates Square and can be called the most elegant street in Moscow. The granite barrier of a monument to Griboedov framed by lamps and stone benches opens the green promenade of the boulevard, the second largest after Tverskaya. Oringally the boulevard was adorned with Poganyi ("Foul") Ponds, so named because they smelled of slaughtered cattle. However, Prince Menshikov, a favorite of Peter the Great, bought some land nearby, cleaned up the ponds, and strictly forbade further pollution, at which point they became Chisty ("Clean") Ponds.
