SEMENTSY, the historical name of the area between Zagorodny Avenue and Obvodny Canal. The name comes from the 18th century settlement of Semenovsky Life Guard Regiment that was quartered on the territory from Zvenigorodskaya Street to Moskovsky Avenue. Sementsy proper includes the area from Ruzovskaya Street to Bronnitskaya Street. Parallel streets that go from Zagorodny Avenue are named after chief towns of districts of Moscow province (Ruzovskaya, Mozhaiskaya, Vereiskaya, Podolskaya, Serpukhovskaya, Bronnitskaya). They are crossed with Klinsky Avenue and Malodetskoselsky Avenue. Residential buildings from the 19th-20th centuries predominate.
