For those who have been in Moscow for the last new year and even the ones before, you can confirm that around December 31 and January 1, it is better to be prepared to circulate in the Moscow city center due to the closing of many streets, including Tverskaya street. This year, Tverskaya street will be closed for 10 days, starting from 2 am on December 28 to 10 pm on January 6 as reported on the website of the mayor and the government of the capital.
Tverskaya is not the only street that will be closed due to the festival. During the festival, for Muscovites and guests of the capital, concerts, performances and master classes will be held.
Thus during the period mentioned before, the sections of Tverskaya Street (from Tverskaya Boulevard to Mokhovaya Street), Mokhova Street (from Vozdvizhenka to Tverskaya Street), Okhotny Ryad Street (from Mokhovaya Street to Teatralskaya Street) and sections of Theater passage (from Okhotny Ryad Street to Petrovka Street) will become pedestrian streets.
