The main street in Mozhaisk is Ulitsa Moskovskaya which starts close to the Mozhaisk Kremlin and runs across the city. The central square in the city is Oktyabrskaya Ploschad and from here Ulitsa Klementievskaya runs north to the River Moskva. It is around here in the north of the city that the Luzhetsky Monastery is located.
It is worth combining a trip to Mozhaisk with a visit to the village (posyolok) of Borodino, which is located 8km west of Mozhaisk and is known for the famous battle that took place here in 1812 between the Russian army and the Grande Armée of Napoleon. Now the Borodino State Military and Historical Museum-Reserve has been established here to commemorate the battle and those who fell there.
