Arbat Street, Moscow: 39 reviews and 71 photos
Old Arbat is a walking street, and Novy Arbat is a big traffic street and parallel to its older brother.
Is a historic street with beautiful sculptors and people selling art, 'Soviet' tat and pets!
Novy Arbat, is worth viewing for its brutal Soviet architect, like concrete book case.
The root of the name "Arbat" probably comes from the Salvonic word gorbat, meaning "hilly ground", although it is equally as possible that the word stems from the Arabic word arbad, meaning "suburb".
