At the end of the 18th century the city grew up, the wall lost its defensive significance and was dismantled to be replaced by boulevards: Gogol, Nikolsky, Tver, Strastnoy, Petrovski, Rozhdestvensky, Sretenski, Chistoprudniy, Pokrovsky, Yauzsky. The length of the Boulevard Ring is more than 9 km. It looks like a horseshoe, the ends of which reach the Moskva River.
