Located a bit behind the monument of the famous poet (looking from Tverskoy boulevard) this is very lovely and rather busy square. Nice fountains and flower gardens in the middle. Good for taking a break from all the hustle of the city.

Just spent around 30 minutes exploring the square...both sides of Tverskaya...reached by underpass. Both sides bedecked in Christmas lights at present. Beautiful, a real picturesque scene. The square worth a quick visit if only to admire the dominating statue of Pushkin.
