Savvinskaya Embankment in Moscow

Savvinskaya Embankment is located on the left bank of the Moskva River in Khamovniki between Rostovskaya Embankment and Novodevichy Proyezd (Moscow, Russia).

Just like Savvinsky lanes, the embankment was named at the beginning of the 20th century after the patriarchal settlement of the Savvin (Savvinsky) monastery located here in the 15th-17th centuries (it was first mentioned in the will of 1454 of Peter Dobrynsky, who transferred “the monastery of St. Sava to the Metropolitan of Kyiv and All Rus”).
