the city never sleeps

Pushkin Square is the very heart of Moscow, plenty of people, jams after midnight, theaters and best city restaurants within five minutes walk. Tremendous

Pros: Nice monument. Benches. Good for people watching. Cons: Only can be reached from underground pass. Can't spend more than 5 minutes there. Summary: Doesn't take much effort to check out the square if you are already walking by it.

And of course a statue of Pushkin! But nothing that would make it really an attraction, however walking by the Tverskoy boulevard you will find your way here. It's a classic demonstration place in Moscow. But you will find some greens around this area which is quite refreshing.

It's an undertaking to cross this square - there are a lot of people even during night time!!! But for me this place will be always connected with word "Life" - thirteen years ago I should have had my straight way through Metro Station under this square, but I usually like to do stupid things spontaneously and prefer hard ways...

There is nothing especial to say about Pushkin square, one thing I've never liked about it - tons of low-quality (but sometimes even pretty and young) lesbians hanging over the place all the year (in summer population increases, of source). I mean, I don't really hate them. I really like lesbians but I hate this place being "the meeting point".... More

Kind of our analogy to the Time Square. Just slow down when you drive by.. ;)
