This is the longest pedestrian street in Yoshkar-Ola. It was named in honor of the first Mari writer and dramatist Sergey Grigorievich Chavayn.
The Boulevard was built in the 1960s of XX century. The chief city architect of that time, Yury Kazarinov, designed the future favorite place of the residents of Yoshkar-Ola. A monument to Sergey Chavayn was erected in 1978 in the center of the pedestrian zone. Since then the Boulevard bears the name of the first Mari writer and dramatist. The reconstruction of the Boulevard took place in 2005, now it is decorated with bright flowerbeds, curved benches and beautiful fountains.
