Ulitsa Tverskaya-Yamskaya Review
This last section of ulitsa Tverskaya leads to Belorussky railway station, which also has two interconnecting metro stations. The entrances to all three stations are spread along the edge of sprawling ploshchad Tverskaya Zastava, known for its gnarled traffic patterns caused by construction projects that have occupied it for years. Lately, the area surrounding the square has become home to a number of popular restaurants, including the gastropub favorite Ragout and a midrange steakhouse called Torro Grill. Belorussky station is where trains roll in from Western Europe (and from Sheremetyevo airport on the Aeroexpress) and is the site of the former Triumphal Gates, built in the 19th century by the architect Osip Bove to commemorate the Russian victory in the war with Napoléon. The gates were demolished in a typical fit of destruction in the 1930s. A replica of the original gates was erected in 1968 near Poklonnaya Hill, at the end of Kutuzovsky prospekt.
