Underground Danilovskiy river in the central part of Moscow

Autumn is almost over and all the streets in Moscow are dirty. And it is hard to climb underground through a manhole, but some experienced methods helped me to come down almost without getting dirty and reach Danilovskiy River. Danilovskiy River (other names - Danilovka, Khudenitsa) is located in the central part of Moscow. It is a right tributary of Moscow River. It flows from Serpukhovskaya Square not far from Danilov Monastery in the east direction to Moscow River. Its lengh is more than 2 km.

At one of its parts, the collector has a non-typical form for Moscow - it is round with a border. Its bottom is bricked. And sometimes the river is devided in two collectors, which branch at the tributaries and then flow into one stream.

The underground river flows very quickly. When I was still walking there, it started raining. The water became turbid and increased intensively. I decided to come out to the surface as it is rather dangerous to be there when it's raining. All the water streams underground from the surface and the collector gets filled almost to the very top.

In several minutes I had already come out to the street. It is better to be overcautious than to risk your life without any sense.


  • The coordinates of the river head: the square in the Southern Administrative Okrug of Moscow, Danilovskiy region; between Podolskoe Highway and the streets Liusinovskaya, Mytnaya, Serpukhovskiy Val, Danilovskiy Val, Bolshaya and Malaya Tulskaya.
