"Jelissejew" Top 5 Page for this destination Russia Off The Beaten Path Tip by globetrott

Russia Off The Beaten Path: 91 reviews and 176 photos

Jelissejew stands for pure luxury food

This Delicatess-shop in Moscow was built in the year 1898 by Mr. Grigori Jelissejew . - In sowiet-times it was renamed into ' Gastronom I ' and the shop in Moscow is still operated nowadays, while the one in St. Petersburg was obviously closed forever.
You can enter this shop and take a look around and even take photos without any problems. From outsdie this building does not really look very special (see my last pic) but the interior is really very special !
