Description

The Arbat is one of the main tourist venues of the capital, with its incredible history and unparalleled atmosphere. There are not many streets in the world where such an incredible collection of outstanding artists and cultural figures have lived and worked in such close proximity. The present state of the architecture of the Arbat is not as remarkable as it was a hundred years ago. It is a comfortable pedestrian street one and a half kilometres long with a large number of shops and restaurants. Nevertheless, a few buildings in the Art Nouveau and Avant-Garde styles are of particular interest to architecture connoisseurs. Some major museums are located here (in particular, the Pushkin Memorial House) as well as theatres and some small amusement rides. There are street buskers, artists and numerous souvenir shops where you can find anything – from matryoshkasa set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside another and Russian ushankaa Russian fur cap with ear flaps that can be tied up to the crown of the cap, or fastened at the chin hats to antiques.
