Like any metropolis of the world, Moscow has a huge number of streets, avenues, roads, alleys, boulevards and other facilities. Some of them are so small that they do not exist on many maps. However, it is interesting to know such facts about the capital, as the shortest, longest and the most narrow and wide, the old and new streets.
Today is undoubtedly the shortest street of Moscow. It is located in the village of Sokol in the Northern administrative district, and its length is only 48 meters. On this street there are only 2 private houses, so she can wear the name and the shortest street in the number of homes.
Since the Falcon was built as a village of artists, and the streets got their names by the names of famous Russian painters. So, our heroine got the name of A. G. Venetsianov and adjoins streets named after Surikov and Levitan. Initially, in the 20-ies of the last century, this street was the isthmus between the next longer and had a small Park. But in 1937, in its place built a house artist A. M. Gerasimov. This building separated the passage and made the street a dead end, shortening it by more than half. It is noteworthy that in the years of the great Patriotic war here ran the line of fortifications.
Note the fact that the street Venetsianov not only the shortest street of Moscow, it occupies the fourth place among the shortest streets in the world. By the way, on the third place 40 meter street Sibstroyput ' in Novosibirsk. The first two positions of this peculiar ranking for the streets in the cities of Scotland and England.
This street is slightly longer than the previous one, has 160 meters. But until 1920 she had no competitors, and today many historians, not recognizing Venetsianov full-fledged street, the short street of Moscow - the lazy horse. The name she got from the nearby Lazy Torzhok. But he his name has got due to the fact that trade was conducted not from the shelves, but directly from carts. There is, however, another and river, lazy horse, currently flows through an underground manifold. Perhaps because of it, and the street got its name.

Today, this is the shortest street of Moscow, a quiet place with an expensive and prestigious housing. It is situated between the Garage and the Kremlin embankment. In several buildings located in fashion today, barbershop, hotel, gallery, a couple of cafes and shops.
If you take into account not only the streets, but other topographic features, among the alleys have competitors Lenivke. This, for example, Proudinsky lane in the Presnensky district of Moscow. Until the 19th century it was Unnamed, but later received the name of the landlord Prokudin.
Today, 100 metres of the lane is only 3 houses with offices, shops, hairdressers and small offices.
Another contender is a 58-meter-long Woodcut lane. We can say that this is the shortest street of Moscow in the center with urban development.
It is located near the metro station “Novokuznetskaya” between Marsh street and Sadovnicheskaya embankment, at the same time between the Small Moskvoretsky bridge and the bridge that bears the name of Iron. Once was near the floating bridge, the moving parts of which were connected by ropes from bark, that is the bast-fiber ropes. This gave the lane the name Bast.
By the Way, and the number of houses in this lane can be considered a leader - it is just one building. At Broadside pereulok, 2 is a 6-storey office building.
It is hardly the shortest in the truest sense of the word (because the length of the lane as much as half a kilometer), but we can assume that this is the shortest street in Moscow. There are only 4 letters, while other Moscow streets have names of at least 5 characters.
Daev lane is located in the Central district between Sretenka and Sakharov Avenue. Lane for much of its history has repeatedly changed the names given to him in honor of the eminent personalities of a particular time. The modern name he gave to the homeowner and a senior official of the 19th century Peter Daev.
