Rostropovich and Vysotsky Parks to Appear in Moscow
Monument to Mstislav Rostropovich

Moscow authorities intend to allow toname city parks after well-known people.

      As the head of Moscow Culture Department Sergey Kapkov said to Izvestia news agency, such practice is widespread in Europe, for example, “squares in Paris have personal names”. The official supports the relevant amendments in the Moscow law on streets’ territorial names, which are prepared by the chairman of the Culture and Mass Communication Commission of Moscow City Council Evgeny Gerasimov. The first park to receive a personal name may become the one where there is a monument of Mstislav Rostropovich, which is located between Bryusov Lane and Eliseysky Lane.

      If the amendments are passed, the city will acquire parks named after well-known people, such as the poet Vladimir Vysotsky, the opera singer Galina Vishnevskaya, the director and composer Yevgeny Svetlanov, and the poet Sergey Mikhalkov.
