Kuznetski most street  

Another view of a section of Kuznetski Most, showing classical buildings turned into expensive shops. 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.
