Going Up and Down On the Garden Ring

I have good news and bad news about the traffic situation on the Garden Ring.

Let's start with the bad news. Due to the reconstruction on the Garden Ring in front of the Peking Hotel, it is very difficult to make a right turn from Vtoraya Brestskaya Ulitsa.

There is a big traffic jam at the end of the street if you're driving toward the Garden Ring. For a good detour, you should take a right on Vasilyevskaya Ulitsa and then turn to the left to Ulitsa Krasina.

Drive through Ulitsa Krasina to the intersection with the Garden Ring and turn to the right. I used this detour yesterday. It is faster, but it seems to me that too many drivers use this same route. Anyway, it is the only detour you can use.

Now the good news. The left turn from the Garden Ring to Barrikadnaya Ulitsa in front of the skyscraper is open again.

You should take the right lane on the Garden Ring after you pass the U.S. Embassy.

After you pass the intersection with Povarskaya Ulitsa, turn to the left at the intersection with Bolshaya Nikitskaya Ulitsa. The small flower bed should be on your left.
