Tver's Glory Square is located in the central part of the city, not far from Sovetskaya Street. The place has been of considerable importance for the city since pre-revolutionary times. At first, there was a large trade in hay, and therefore the area was called Sennaya for a long time.
In the Soviet years, mass renaming of urban objects was carried out. A street appeared in Tver, a native of the Tver province, Russian writer M. E. S altykov-Shchedrin, which crossed the territory of Sennaya. The square also received the name of the satirical writer.
