Moskovskaya Embankment

What to see

Konstantin Ivanov Square

The square is located in the historical part of the city. It is named after Konstantin Ivanov, a classic of the Chuvash literature, the author of the poem "Narspi" which was translated to 16 languages of the world. According to archeological research, several centuries earlier a churchyard and Nikolsky Women's Monastery were situated here. In 1601 Maria Shestova, a grandmother of the first Russian Tsar, was exiled to this monastery.

Today the square is a quiet and cozy place for rest. It is nice to take a walk in the shadow of trees, to watch the beauty of the Volga River and breath in fresh air. Pass through the so called Alley of Lovers, make a photo shoot or enjoy your picnic in scenic surroundings; have fun and useful leisure time in this lovely place!

This summer entertainment team dressed up in costumes of the heroes of the poem "Narspi" is welcoming visitors here. Entertainers will introduce works of the poet, make theatrical performance and tell you interesting facts about the history of the poem.

    Renovated embankment

    In 2016 the territory of the embankment was renovated and thus became more comfortable. The reconstruction of the space is a great present for the locals and guests from behalf of the city authorities. The program of improvement includes four steps: the first one was finished in 2016, the second — in the summer 2017. Final works are planned to be done by the year 2019 — 550th anniversary of Cheboksary.

    As we can see the results of the first steps realization, the embankment appeared in a totally new format. Pedestrian boulevard has become wider, a bike path appeared, benches and streetlights decorate the space now, a grass lawn has been rolled out and several leisure and sport areas have been constructed, such as a playground, volleyball courts, workout zones.

    Central Beach has been also changed. Shower cabins, changing rooms, drinking water fountains and sunbeds are now at everyone's disposal. The descent to the Volga River has been equipped with wooden stairs-benches, a perfect place to sit, sunbathe and watch sunrise or sunset.

    The renovation is to be continued. Its conception is designed in tandem of local and Moscow architects. Thus in March 2018 independent architecture school MARCH Lab (Moscow) and the city administration organized MARCH on the embankment workshop.
