History[edit]

The territory of the present area "Voikovsky" was inhabited by people in ancient times, as evidenced by archaeological excavations in 1932-34. However, multi-storey construction began only under Soviet rule. The main highway of the district is the Leningrad Highway which has a long history. The former Petrograd Highway in 1924 became Leningrad and is the main thoroughfare on the way to St. Petersburg. In the 15th-17th centuries through the village of Nakhinskoe, later Nikolskoe, there was a large trade road to Tver, along it there were trade people, numerous convoys with goods, drove cattle. No wonder the old adage read: "The City of Tver - the door to Moscow". In the 18th century, when Peter I moved the capital to St. Petersburg, the road connected the two largest cities of Russia.

The metro station "Voykovskaya" got its name from the settlement Voikovets located in this part of Moscow at the plant named after. Behind the second lobby of the "Voykovskaya" metro station in 1970, the "Warsaw" cinema was built with a large concert hall for 1200 seats, which at the moment does not work, and the room is rented to a restaurant.

The present appearance of the Voykovsky district began to form in the 1930s, when together with the Khimki Reservoir, the first multi-storey residential buildings, appeared on its territory. After 1945, mass housing and industrial construction began, new neighborhoods appeared (for example, the micro district "Lebed" that was famous in the 1970s). Now the reconstruction of a dilapidated housing stock and vast territories of industrial enterprises is in full swing in the region, objects of social and cultural life are being built. On the territory of the district there will be a section of the Fourth Ring Road with a network of large interchanges and flyovers, as well as a high-speed track for the Leningrad highway.
