Back in the 16th century on the right bank of the Moskva Riverformed a patriarchal fishing village, where mostly fishermen and peasants lived. Here there was a modest church of the Tikhvin Mother of God and had one more name "On Berezhki". So called the two banks, but the name that she gave, it was fixed for the right.
Over time, the appearance of this place changed,the railway to Kiev was built, and Okruzhnaya, along with the Krasnoluzhsky bridge, warehouses appeared. In the middle of the last century, Soviet power first rebuilt the church, and then broke, but the name remains. Berezhkovskaya embankment was built, there were thermal power stations and residential buildings, and now it is a part of Dorogomilovo district. In the Soviet period, the embankment "dressed" in granite.
