Kuznetski most street  

Kuznetski Most, fashionable street in downtown Moscow. It is in Beli gorod just outside the corner of Kitai gorod just behind Lubyanka. The section of the street is named for the bridge (most) on Vvedenski street that crossed the Neglinna River that flowed from the north-east and then was split to form the moats around the Kremlin and Kitai gorod. The river is now entirely underground. The Kuznetski sloboda or quarter name (kuznets) was the place of the blacksmiths, and farriers of the tsar's court.
