RUSSIAN HILL
THE CROOKED STREET SPOT
Welcome to Russian Hill, San Francisco.
The name Russian Hill goes all the way back to the Gold Rush era, when settlers discovered a tiny Russian cemetery at the top of the hill. Russian naval and merchant ships often visited San Francisco throughout the 19th century, and apparently there are quite a few crew members buried in the cemetery. Since then, the graveyard has been removed, but the name remains to this day. While the oldest Russian orthodox church in San Francisco, Holy Trinity Cathedral, is located close by, there is as of present no significant Russian population in this area. Instead, most of the city's Russian community is located in the Richmond District. One of the more famous spots in Russian Hill is the Lombard Street, known as the crookedest street in the world, thanks to its eight sharp turns. Since this is one of the major tourist attractions in San Francisco, the neighborhood is often crowded with tourists. Visitors also like to ride the epic cable car line along Hyde Street, which rides by rows of restaurants and shops. If you really want to see what this neighborhood is about though, you should travel by foot. Walk the stairways and alleys to get an up-close view of the many magnificent residences tell visual stories about Russian Hill's past and present.
