Miss the Mira Mess

It seems that every morning there is a traffic jam at the intersection of Prospekt Mira and Zvyozdny Bulvar as you head toward the center. Driving into the center from Yaroslavskoye Shosse, you can avoid getting stuck in this traffic by making a simple detour.

As soon as you cross the bridge over the Yauza river, take the first right onto Ulitsa Sergeya Eisensteina. Drive 100 meters to the first intersection and make a left onto Prodolny Proyezd. Go past the main entrance to the All-Russia Exhibition Center, or VVTs, straight to the end of this street, where there's a loop for the streetcars to turn around. After crossing the tram tracks, turn right onto 1st Ostankinskaya Ulitsa and drive about a hundred meters. Then make the first left onto Ulitsa Tsandera.You should follow this street through all its zigzags, crossing Ulitsa Akademika Korolyova. At the end of Ulitsa Tsandera bear to the right onto 6th Novoostankinsky Proyezd.

Follow this small street through the intersection with Zvyozdny Bulvar and straight on to Prospekt Mira. Turn right on Prospekt Mira and continue on your way to the center.
