Nikitsky Gates

Nikitsky Gates from outer Nikitskaya St.

Several intersections along the boulevard ring, the inner of the two rings built over former city walls, are named after the gates that once stood in these walls. The Nikitsky Gates are at the junction of the Boulevard Ring (Tverskoy & Nikitsky Boulevard) with Bolshaya Nikitskaya St. (Hertzen St.)

The statue of Timiryazev is located here on the Tverskoy Boulevard side of the intersection.
