Arbat: The New Concept

Arbat Street will be decorated for 520th anniversary. This year is the 520th one since Arbat Street was mentioned in the chronicles for the first time. It is one of the oldest Moscow streets.


Department of culture has drafted an arrangement of celebrations of this date. The celebration events will take place from October 1 to October 2, 2013. The project provides a full-scale improvement of Arbat street, elaboration of the new cultural and recreational concept of the street, development of new bordering scheme of pedestrian area.


Arbat Street is related with such names as A. Pushkin, S. Rachmaninoff, A. Scriabin, N. Gogol, L. Tolstoy, M. Saltykov-Shchedrin, A. Chekhov, A. Blok, E. Vakhtangov, B. Okudzhava. Some landmarks were irrevocably lost during construction of Kalinin Street (modern New Arbat). For almost 40 years Arbat was the only pedestrian street in Moscow and one of the city’s symbols and attractions for lots of Russian and foreign tourists.
