It is one of the ancient districts of Moscow. It was named Zariadie in the 17th century, because of its location behind ("za") the traders’ stalls ("riady"), which extended from Moscow River to Varvarka Street along Moskvoretskaya Street.
If you walk downstairs to the entries of the church and monastery, all city sounds will stay behind you somewhere in the distance. Here you can visit the museum of the first English Embassy in Russia and the Palace of the Romanov boyars. Its small rooms, narrow passageways, steep staircases create an atmosphere of medieval Russia. All the halls of the chambers have a typical interior of the boyar house of 17th century. They are decorated with authentic household goods: wooden chairs, benches, trunks and silverware.
