Ulitsa Bolshaya Nikitskaya

Bolshaya Nikitskaya is one of the many old streets radiating from the Kremlin, spokelike, just like ulitsa Tverskaya to the northeast and Novy Arbat to the southwest. The street was laid out along the former road to Novgorod, an ancient town northwest of Moscow, and is divided into two sections. The first part is lined with 18th- and 19th-century mansions and also includes the Tchaikovsky Conservatory and Moscow State University buildings; it begins at Ploshchad Manezhnaya, across from the fortification walls of the Kremlin. The second section, notable for its enchanting art nouveau mansions, starts at ploshchad Nikitskiye Vorota, where ulitsa Bolshaya Nikitskaya intersects with Bulvarnoye Koltso (the Boulevard Ring).
