The street first emerged around 1955 as 7th Cheryomushki Street (Седьмая Черёмушкинская улица), before being named after Admiral Pavel Nakhimov in 1965.[1]

As part of the cancelled Fourth Ring Road (ru), Nakhimovsky Prospekt is a busy chord connecting radial streets, with major crossings like Varshavskoye Highway and Profsoyuznaya Street.

The avenue is serviced by two metro stations, Nakhimovsky Prospekt (built 1983) in the beginning and Profsoyuznaya (built 1962) in the middle part.
