    After dinner, take a short walk around the area. Let's start our way on Chistoprudniy Boulevard.
    This is the largest boulevard in the area and the second longest (after Tver) on the Boulevard Ring.
    During the XIX century, the building of the boulevard was clearly divided - the inner side was built up by two-story houses belonging to different departments (in the middle of the XIX century, two houses belonged to colonels and one - to a merchant), external - one-story houses more victorious. At the end of the century, the boulevard is built up with three-four-story apartment houses; In 1945-1952, most of these houses were built up to six or seven floors with the preservation of a common architectural appearance.

    Open Details
    The area occupied by Chistoprudniy Boulevard is known from the 16th century, when slaughterhouses were located here - "Zhivotinniy Dvor", later "Gosudarev Battle Courtyard". Meat trade gave the name of the adjacent Myasnitskaya street, and its waste, dumped in the nearest marsh - "Poganomu pond". A stream ran out of the marsh, Rachka flowing to the south and flowing into the Moscow River near the Upbringing House.
    Count Alexander Danilovich Menshikov, who bought a site on Myasnitskaya Street, in 1703 ordered to clean the pond, polluted with the waste of meat trade, which since then began to be called Clean. The use of the name was Chistye Prudy, although the pond is currently only one.
