Pure Ponds is the most romantic place in Moscow, which is reflected in painting and poetry. In the 17th century there were gardens here. Vegetables from them were supplied to the royal and patriarchal palace.
Now the Garden suburb is a cozy area with charming courtyards, where wooden houses, already so rare in Moscow, are still preserved. It is a quiet, extraordinarily beautiful, picturesque and cozy corner of Moscow, decorated with weeping willows and crystal clear water of ponds, about which Igor Talkov once sang brilliantly.
Brave Chistoprudny boulevard with adjoining alleys keeps a lot of stories, which can be learned, once on poetic ponds and, of course, looking into the lovely Moscow courtyards. Then we will walk on the Cover and finally find out where the Pokrovskaya Gate and much more have gone.
