Zero kilometre

Moscow > Zero kilometre

Zero kilometre

The key to success for a traveller can be a coin thrown behind one's shoulder in front of Voskresenskiye gates, on the way to the Red Square. It is important to hit the Zero kilometre sign, designed by Alexander Rukavishnikov in 1995. Since then the bronze surface of the sign felt the coins from all over the world.

It seems that thanks to the antics of superstitious travellers, there would be a hill of money on the spot. But this attraction is not going to appear: the money thrown there is quickly picked up by babushkas, for whom the Zero kilometre has a monetary equivalent. Bizarrely, the real start of all Russian roads is in several hundred metres from this place — by the Central Telegraph building. But it is not important for those who believe that a coin that hit the bronze sign in the pavement will bring them luck on the road or even will help them return to Moscow.
