Around Manezhnaya Ploschad

Manezhnaya Ploschad

Located immediately north of Red Square is Manezhnaya Ploschad (Manege Square), which got its name from the manege (riding school) located here. In the 1930s the square was redeveloped with the construction of the iconic Moskva Hotel and in 1967 the square was renamed Ploschad 50-letia Oktyabra (50th Anniversary of October Square). The square's former name was returned in the 1990s and it was once more redeveloped: the square was closed to traffic, the underground Okhotny Ryad Shopping Centre was built and the Moskva hotel was demolished and rebuilt. One of Moscow's main streets - Ulitsa Tverskaya - starts from Manezhnaya Ploschad.
