Moscow Shopping: 161 reviews and 223 photos

Actulally the best place to get opriginal souvenirs is the Vernisazh market that takes place during week ends in the park Izmaylovsky.
But if, like me, you cannot go during week end, a good alternative is Arbat street, the old Arbat is simply full of souvenirs shops and street vendors selling matrioskas, old URSS flags, hats and so on.
In the street shopping is also a pleasure for the many street artists performing.
The best shop I found in the street is: Artshop Arbat street 12 opened saily 9.30 untill 20.30.

What to buy: Matrisokas, postcards, and many more local crafts.

Address: Arbat street 12
Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
