"The Arbats- so different, so pleasant" Arbat Street Tip by skywarp

Arbat Street, Moscow: 39 reviews and 71 photos

  Noviy Arbat
by skywarp

Old Arbat- walk along this charming street, with its unique atmosphere. You'll see street vendors everywhere. They sell typical souvenirs, always at higher cost than in other places. You can always bargain though. Sit by a café and watch the people go by. Lovely.
New Arbat- a busy , yet pleasant street. There's a lot of shoarma stands in the street, where they make some delicious shoarma. Visit the Dom Knigi which is probably the biggest bookstore in Moscow.

Address: metro: Arbatskaya, Smolenskaya
