Prechistenka Street

Recommended
At N° 1 Prechistenka Street note the white palace of Prechistenka, typical of late 17C Moscow, although currently sadly dilapidated, and Famitsyne Palace at N° 3. Both buildings are a reminder that this road laid out in the 16C between the "white city" and Novodevichy Monastery was known for its aristocratic residences. It miraculously survived the destructive urbanism of the Soviet era.
