«Fountains Along The Offlet of Moscow River»
The plan to construct the catch water drain of Moscow River was presented in 1775 to protect the areas nearby Moscow Kremlin from foods. The project was realized later in 1783 during repairing of Big Stone Bridge over Moscow-River when it was broken after another spring flood. During 19 and 20 centuries it was perfected and after constructing new overflow weir the offlet lost its original function. In present days the banks of the canal strengthen with concrete walls and faced with granite slabs. The catch water drain is 4 km long, from 30 to 50 meters wide and about 2 meters deep.
