 Petrovka Street 

 
 

     Petrovka is one of the main and the oldest streets in Moscow centre. It goes from Teatralnaya Square to Sredny Karetny Lane. The street received its name after Vysokopetrovsky Monastery that was founded at the end of thr 15th century. The name Petrovka has been used since the end of the 17th century and has never been changed. This is a very rare case for streets in the historical centre of Moscow. In the 18th century the street was built up and in the second half of the century there appeared manors of Moscow the elite. In the 19th century Petrovka became one of the main trade streets in Moscow. There were a number of reconstructions in the 20th century that changed the architectural ensemble of the street but there are still many historical buildings in this street.
