The history of Zaryadye district is very old and rich. It has practically got it all: ancient chambers and temples, estates and shopping stalls, administrative buildings and hotels. The district received its name based on its location behind the shopping stalls ("ryady"), which have not been preserved to our time. But now, many people associate it with the most central and fashionable park in the capital.
