New Moscow streets to get maritime names

New Moscow streets to get maritime names
Eight new streets will appear on the Moscow map with maritime-themed names.

Eight new street names will be related to water and shipbuilding. All the names were approved by the Moscow Interdepartmental Names Commission chaired by Deputy Mayor Leonid Pechatnikov.

In the Nagatinsky Zaton District in southern Moscow, an unnamed side street will become Korabelnaya Street (“ship street”). It is located near the Moscow Water Transport Academy between Kolomenskaya Street and Rechnikov Street. Many streets in the area already have water- and ship-themed names. For example, Sudostroitelnaya (“shipbuilding”), Zatonnaya (“backwater”) and Yakornaya (“anchor”) streets.

Seven more “water” streets will appear in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas. The Aleksandrovy Prudy suburban community near the village of Troitskoye will get Kapitanskaya (“captain”), First and Fourth Rybatskaya (“fisherman”) streets and Rybatsky Pereulok. The village will also have Aleksandrovy Prudy (“Alexander Ponds”), First and Second Katernaya (“motorboat”) streets.

New residential areas are under construction in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas. The streets in these areas are the ones most frequently being named now. Soon, there will also be Cervantes Boulevard and Velazquez Street, as well as seven streets honouring Silver Age artists and Soviet nature writers.
