 Garden Ring 

 
 

     Garden Ring is a circle trunk-road in Moscow centre. Its length is 15,6 km and width is 60-70 m.
    Garden Ring was founded after the 1812 Fire of Moscow instead of a fortification, dismantled Zemlyanoy Val and a filled ditch that existed from the end of the 16th century. Paves and sidewalks at first were about 25m width-way and the rest of the space was given to gardens and boulevards.
    In the 1930s the Garden Ring was reconstructed as gardens were pulled down. The streets and squares of the Ring were built up.
    At the beginning of the 1950s the belt-line of the underground started operating. Many of the stations are situated in the Garden Ring.
