The Gostiny Dvor business center occupies a historical building just 200 meters away from the Kremlin walls. Designed in the late 18th century by the Italian architect Giacomo Quarenghi, the building underwent a major reconstruction in 1995, adding a state-of-the-art automation and control system. The business center is home to numerous dining venues and boutiques of well-known brands. High-profile shows, concerts, and exhibitions often take place here.
Gostiny Dvor shares a neighborhood with many theaters, museums, shopping centers, hotels, banks, etc. The nearest metro stations – Kitai Gorod and Ploschad Revolutsii – are within a 5-minute walk from the venue; and it will take just a couple minutes longer to get to the Okhotny Ryad station. The nearby streets include Varvarka, Moskvoretskaya, Maroseyka, Myasnitskaya, and Mokhovaya.
