Kadashevskaya Embankment

Kadashevskaya Embankment – the Vodootvodny Canal embankment in the center of Moscow in the Yakimanka and Zamoskvorechye districts between Bolshaya Polyanka and Pyatnitskaya streets.

It arose on the site of the palace Kadashevskaya Khamovnaya settlement of the 17th century. For the first time, Kadashevo (Kadashi) is mentioned in the will of Ivan III of 1504. In the XVI century. Kadashevskaya Sloboda becomes, along with Khamovnicheskaya Sloboda, the center of textile (boorish) production in Moscow.
