Alexander Radishchev, whose surname was given to this street, was a writer and we Russians know him pretty well because of his ‘Journey from St. Petersburg to Moscow’ book which we studied at school. I will not say this street is somehow related to the book but I really like its coziness and silence, especially on weekends. Someone will say Summer garden is a more appropriate place for nice Sunday walks but I do not agree. Do you need tourists on your way or beautiful 18/19th century buildings?
It unites two central spots: Vosstaniya square (Moskovsky railway station/subway station) and Chernyshevskaya subway station. One can easily walk through this street in about half an hour and the journey will be nice because there are a lot of beautiful buildings on both sides – and even this awesome Hermitage-looking green house in front of Radisheva street you see here on the picture.
Use your eyes. Welcome to the world of people who walk.
And if you’re hungry (or bored), jump to Auroville restaurant.
