Zamoskvoreche

Zamoskvoreche was settled in the 15th century by merchants and artisans, and many of its streets still bear the names of their trades. Prone to flooding, much of the land was given over to industry and farming. During the 19th century a canal was dug to prevent the floods and several large estates were established.
