All major world cities usually have one or more streets around what their most promising and luxury shops congregate. Typically and global is usually alternate in cafes, restaurants and boutiques. Incidentally, in MV Reviews recently talked about the exclusive Via Montenapoleone in Milan.
In the Russian capital, credit goes to the distinguished today Tverskaya street, formerly named after the revolutionary writer Maxim Gorky. But times changed significantly since 1917, and again from 1991. During its history, reflecting much of the Moscow Russian history in particular and in general the street increased 2 ½ times its width and was rectified.

While prices of homes located on Tverskaya not stop up from the end of last decade, tourists walking this street are surprised by the unusual "chic" feel of this area of Moscow.
