This outline gives you some guidance as to the most popular residential areas in the city center. Of course, there will be some overlap and you will certainly receive assistance from your real estate consultant in choosing the best neighborhood for you. It’s useful to have the address of your or your spouse’s work place and any schools you are considering so that you can assess the convenience of different areas for you. Outside the city center there are also a number of gated residential compounds popular with families.

ARBAT

The Old Arbat is a true symbol of old Moscow. This area takes us back to the unique world of quiet lanes where each house is still steeped in the atmosphere of old Moscow.

KROPOTKINSKAYA

If you would like to live in the most beautiful central Moscow area, close to major city attractions but without the noise and rush of the traffic, you should move to Kropotkinskaya. Right by the golden dome of the Christ the Savior Cathedral, there is an area where charming early century Art Nouveau mansions meet trendy homes built by modern architects. The section between the Moscow river and the streets Ostozhenka and Prechistenka have been called the Moscow Golden Mile due to the number of new upscale residential developments in the area.

CHISTY PONDS

The name Chystye Prudy (Clean Ponds) dates back to the early 18th century Moscow. Ironically, its original name was Poganye Prudy (Foul Ponds) as it was a Moscow meat district at the time. In 1710, during the period of Tzar Peter the Great, the ponds were cleaned, and the area became one of the prime Moscow residential neighborhoods and certainly remains so to the present day. Beautiful 18th -19th century buildings overlook a lovely pond placed in a park of the Moscow Boulevard Ring. The area is especially prized by the French for its European charm, peace and quiet and also for its proximity to the French School location.

PATRIARSHY PONDS

Patryarshy Ponds is a peaceful residential neighborhood located in the very heart of Moscow. It has become the favorite address for expat housing and is very much loved by Muscovites. The Patryarshy Ponds area is ideally positioned within walking distance to five metro stations on four metro lines, and within immediate access to major center city traffic routes, right between the Garden Ring, the Boulevard Ring, Tverskaya and Novy Arbat. The area has received its name from the charming city park with a pond surrounded by residential buildings. Properties overlooking the pond are especially sought after. In the summer, the park is ideal for allowing your children to play, walking a dog or jogging. In winter, the Pond turns into a skating ring, beautifully decorated with colorful lights. The neighborhood is the home of the most fashionable city restaurants, theaters, museums. Many embassies are also located here. Accordingly don’t be surprised to find out how many of your future expat friends and coworkers will live around the block.

TVERSKAYA

In the 14th century this was the road linking Moscow with Tver. Magnificent palaces and mansions were built here, with the Kremlin only five minutes walk away. Tverskaya street is a wide central avenue bustling with life, with large buildings on the sides where there are various shops, clubs, cafes and restaurants inside. You can’t get any more central. Tverskaya street is the Moscow 5th Avenue.

TSVETNOY BOULEVARD

Tsvetnoy boulevard is a central part of Moscow, where retail shops and business centers are side by side with green areas. Situated between Sretenka street and Tverskaya street, this area would be perfect for those seeking an inexpensive central home. Most vintage buildings along Sretenka retained their original facades but have been completely overhauled to become upscale business centers and housing projects. Petrovsky and Rozhdestvensky boulevards with their centuries-old trees have been preserved remarkably well and offer beautiful walks in summertime.

ZAMOSKVORECHYE

Zamoskvorechye can be translated to English as ‘Behind the river’ that describes exactly where it is: behind the river to the south. This area has a distinct Moscovitan aura and it’s just a pleasure to walk around its narrow streets and courtyards.

TAGANSKAYA

In old Moscow this area was surrounded by five monasteries, which served the role of protecting Moscow’s eastern border. The names of streets and lanes of the Tagan hill remind of craft villages. In a village of potters there were three abundantly decorated churches to the envy or armoury-makers, typographers and weavers. Taganskaya is less popular than other central areas. The reasons are noise, pollution and traffic. Tagankaya square is a version of Las Vegas, full of neon lights, casinos and clubs. The traffic may be busy here, and you can lose a lot of time in the car getting out of the area. Finally, during the Soviet time, except for some ministerial buildings on Bolshye Kamenshiki street and some others, Taganskaya was constructed mainly for Moscow working class. Therefore, there were very few quality residential buildings here at the time. Main type of residential buildings in Taganskaya was buildings with lower ceilings and smaller “cookie-cutters” apartments. Nevertheless, today, due to its central location the Taganskaya area is developing quickly like the rest of the city and recently became the home for several newly constructed luxury residential complexes.

FRUNZENSKAYA

This area stretches along the Moscow river and offers many green areas. You can hardly find some more green and calm area all over Moscow. Frunzenskaya Embankment is a living picture of beauty and harmony of Moscow. Monumental buildings are surrounded by apple trees that give this area unforgettable charm expecially in spring. No industrial buildings are located here, Frunzenskaya is a purely residential area. Gorky Park lies across the river and the beautiful Novodevichy convent and the Luzhniki stadium are nearby.

KRASNOPRESNENSKAYA

Krasnopresnenskaya area is located immediately outside the Garden ring, on the North-West. It is a great option for those who want to live in the center of the city without overpaying for it. Krasnopresnenskaya area is only half a mile away from Tverskaya, the Garden ring, Patriarchy Ponds, Smolenskaya and other most central and expensive areas. At the same time it is 10% to 25% more affordable. Moreover, this area is unusually green for Moscow - there several parks and the Moscow Zoo. Most residential buildings have breathtaking views to the Zoo ponds with swans, the White house, two or three Stalin skyscrapers. The area is a home to the US and several other embassies.

LENINGRADSKY PROSPEKT

Leningradsky prospect is one of the main and busiest city avenues, which continues from Tverskaya street up north in the direction of Sheremetyevo airport. Historically, it was built to connect Moscow with Tver, Novgorod and St. Petersburg. Leningradsky prospect has long been a favorite place of residence among Muscovites. In the 1920's, Soviet artists and writers were offered private houses with studios in a village just off the prospect. The Artist Compound still exists and is very popular among expat for its peace and greenery. In late 1940, the prospect was rebuilt with new monumental Stalin type buildings along the expanded street. Apartments were offered mostly to war veterans, outstanding scientists, and musicians. Many buildings still have memorial signs to honor the Soviet elite who used to live there.

KUTUZOVSKY PROSPEKT

Kutuzovsky Prospekt is a major arterial road to the west of the city. It is bounded by ‘massive’ architectural apartment blocks – once home to many politbureau (communist party authorities) members. The lower floors of these buildings now house many international fashion boutiques and expensive retailers. In this district you will find Victory Park, a park to honor the millions who died and those who survived in World War II. The Triumphal Arch stands on the eastern edge of the Victory Park.

LENINSKY PROSPEKT

This area is well known by Sparrow Hills (‘Vorobyevy Gory’) with its splendid panoramic view of the city and Moscow University. Moscow University enjoys a special place in Russias intellectual landscape. Founded by Mikhail Lomonosov in 1755 it has been the center of Russian liberal thought, daring research and first-rate education ever since.

The most important factor is the location and convenience of the property but there are however other issues you should consider. There is period during the summer when the municipal hot water undergoes annual servicing. You should therefore look at what provision there is for hot water / heating during this time. What security is available: professional security, concierge, intercom, coded lock? When negotiating a contract the following should be considered and incorporated: will the Landlord provide Internet connection and western TV connection with the Rent? And who is responsible for monthly fees? GREENPOINT services are to help you settle in easily!
