Pushkinskaya is a great area of Tverskaya. The metro stops Pushkinskaya, Chekhovskaya, and Tverskaya all meet here and there are lots of kiosks under the street. They used to have a beer garden during some of the warmer times of year, although I don't know...More

Located a bit behind the monument of the famous poet (looking from Tverskoy boulevard) this is very lovely and rather busy square. Nice fountains and flower gardens in the middle. Good for taking a break from all the hustle of the city.
