Tverskoy Boulevard, the most famous and one of the oldest of Moscow's boulevards, was created in the 18th century, immediately becoming a popular spot for business meetings and a rendezvous for the high society men of writers and painters. It remained the only boulevard in Moscow's Boulevard Ring until the middle of the 19th century. The luxury of noble estates in Tverskoy hosted balls and theatrical performances. Renowned theatres including the Drama Theatre (currently the Pushkin Theatre) and the Moscow Art Theatre had appeared there by the 20th century. This is the site of a splendid monument to the Russian poet Sergei Yesenin. Mariya Yermolova - the greatest actress in the history of Moscow's Maly Theatre, resided in Tverskoy Boulevard.
