Right outside the Resurrection Gates you will see on the ground a large circular bronze plaque. This plaque was established in 1995 and marks kilometre zero - the exact centre of Moscow (although all distances to the city are actually measured using the central telegraph office a few metres away). You will also see people observing the tradition here which is to stand in the centre, make a wish and then throw a coin on the ground. This is then, more often than not, followed by babushkas and homeless people scrambling to pick up the coin and pocket it.
