(This seems confusing, since it runs due south from Moscow, but it led travelers to Podolsk, where the eastward Polish Road began.) No more than a cartroad in Tolstoy's days, it leads the traveler through the ancient cities of Podol'sk, Lopasnia (renamed Chekhov in 1954), Serpukhov, and Tula--names that appear as postmarks on Tolstoy's letters back to Sof'ya Andreevna.
