great short pedestrian lane
Aug 2019
A stroll through the only about 250m long pedestrian lane between Tverskaya street and the Bolshoi theatre makes for a very pleasant experience. There might be some activity meant for visitors, like two young women putting on a duel show with sabres, when I was there, but in general the atmosphere here is much less touristy and commercialised than in the longer and better known pedestrian Arbat street.

There are several restaurants and cafés, also with outdoor seating, such as the café 'Akademia' or a 'Shokoladnitsa' from the well known chain. As a historical street - the name means 'Chamberlain street' - there is also some interesting architecture from tsarist days to look at.

Wit the pedestrianisation more than 20 years ago attractive retro style street lamps have been put up. Just next to a statue of Sergei Prokofiev, walking in the middle of the street with hat and raincoat, is a museum dedicated to the famous 20th century composer.

Beautiful gone by era buildings
Dec 2019 • Couples
Most date back to the years before the dawn of the 20th century, and history could tell a lot of the lives of their occupants. While walking the 250 metres street, We stumbled upon a bronze plaque of the composer Prokofiev; upon reaching the middle length of this street there is a statue in honor of Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko now framed amidst a colorful and massive Christmas lights decoration on both sides of the street.

The light poles are worth admiring just as the facades of the buildings. The strings of Christmas lights above create a canopy dressing up the street.

The flowerbeds are now empty but to make them colorful the dirt was covered with colored wooden chips creating simple designs.

It is a nice street to stroll either going or coming to the Red Square. We have walked several times.

LOVELY TO STROLL ON
Dec 2018 • Solo
This historic pedestrian street connects Tverskaya Street with Bolshaya Dmitrovka, and is very pleasurable to explore!
We did it in December, when there was a delighful Christmas market and gorgeous decorations;
This street has preserved the flavour of 19th century Moscow. Lodging houses, manor houses and theatres coexist harmoniously with lovely cafes, restaurants and 24hrs small and smart supermarkets that all have a small dining area.
The modernist buildings designed by early-20th-century architects are very interesting.
But what makes this street special, is that it was central in the lives of many cultural figures such as Tolstoy, Odoyevsky, Prokofiev, Tropinin, and many other writers, poets and actors who would gather in the different cafés.
The Pedagogical Book House, one of the oldest stores in Moscow (7/5 Bolshaya Dmitrovka St, at the corner of Kamergersky Lane) can be found there, as well as two museums: the Prokofiev Museum, and the MAT Museum .
You will find a wonderful statue ot the great Russian composer Prokoviev, as well as other statues of famous writers!

The fashionable promenade
Aug 2018 • Solo
This is a famous lane, one of the most famous alleys of old Moscow. Although it is small-only a quarter of a kilometer. However, its development belongs to a century ago and consists of apartment houses and city estates of noble families. What is obvious - the old buildings were badly damaged by fire during the Russian-French war. Nevertheless, everything here breathes history. Famous Russian writers, artists, scientists, actors lived here. There were famous cafes, second-hand bookstore. Here is still the main building of one of the best theaters in Moscow and Russia. Now it is mostly a fashionable promenade in the warm season.

Delightful- but we went during the FIFA WC
Jun 2018 • Friends
The area is a delight. We spent about 6-7 hours here, and loved the time. Lively, good restaurant options, shopping from the reasonable stuff to the high end shops, bands playing music. Again, we went during the world cup. I dont know if so many bands perform even when the world cup fever is not there. But you have to still go to this place.. its lovely.. the supermarkets have the option of buying cheap beer and breads and sitting outside and having them, if you dont wanna sit in a restaurant. Worth spending an evening here.

Favorite place in the city center!
Feb 2016 • Couples
I absolutely love Kamergersky! Many years ago it was home to my favorite internet cafe (Net City) and coffee shop (Zen Kofe). Although those spots are gone, there's now a Starbucks, Planet Sushi, Shokoladnitsa, and a few other restaurants. Prime is my favorite spot to grab a snack. There's a bookstore, a theater, and a statue or two. It's right off of Tverskaya, very easy to get to by metro (Okhotny Ryad is closest), and a charming piece of the city center.

Nice place to walk and to shop.
May 2016 • Family
Dear friends. If you visit Moscow do not forget to go to that street. There is nice atmosphere all the time. You can go down to Tverskaya Street passing by a lot of shops, cafes and restaurants. A lot of street music and very beautiful view. Highly recommended.
