Rostovskaya embankment in Moscow

Rostovskaya embankment is a Moscow embankment in the Khamovniki district on the left bank of the Moskva River, located between Smolenskaya embankment and Savvinskaya embankment, opposite the Kievsky railway station and Europe Square.

The Rostov embankment got its name in the 19th century from the Rostov settlement, which arose in the 15th-16th centuries near the metochion of the Rostov bishops. At the end of the 19th century, part of the embankment from the side of the Borodino Bridge was called Mukhina Street and Mukhina Gora (the name of the high bank of the Moscow River).

In the north, from the side of the Borodinsky bridge, the Rostovskaya embankment is a continuation of the Smolenskaya embankment. From the south, after crossing the 1st Vrazhsky lane, Rostovskaya embankment passes into Savvinskaya embankment. The Bogdan Khmelnitsky pedestrian bridge connects the Rostovskaya embankment with Berezhkovskaya.
