  • This outstanding street is both a great place for a pleasant and fascinating walks, and a local landmark. Bridge, surrounded by Russian architecture beginning XX century, pleasantly reminds that the city was founded in 1898. the Russians; in the same way there are inscriptions in Russian. The Avenue of trees, decorated with garlands, which are lighted from dusk, lots of ice and snow sculptures, some of which you can make a lot of beautiful pictures, ice Museum, shopping malls, souvenir shops, restaurants and cafes, street food, Maskers. Arbat-Arbat is! At any time here building movement. Street in its own good in the daytime, and at night, so it must go, and day and night when changing her look in a multitude of lights. Prices in shops, restaurants and especially very high shopping centers (shopping place is not suitable, it is not surprising that shoppers here almost exclusively Chinese); on the street for the 20th. you would grill the tentacles of an Octopus or small local sausage, but worth a peek into the lane or go to the next Street, everything would be cheaper. In "subways", by the way, the price will be lower. The length of the Chzhun'-Yan da Jie about 1, 5 km away. We ate at the "IMAX", which features a cinema. It is located on the left side of the street (if you look at the waterfront), Parkson SHOPPING CENTER, across from the Memorial. On the 2 floor of the large, so-called food court, where there are models with a price tag. Simply show your finger that you want. Price from 10. One serving per person missing. Arbat street location resembles a kind of "jump" between the major sights: from the Hagia Sophia to the top of the street on foot seven minutes; Street rests in a Memorial "Winning flood". This place is the same and the beautiful waterfront, and Stalin Park. Through the Park to the left we reach the cable car across the river. Before it in the same way water crossing (in summer) and ice (winter) on the sunny island with its Park, Oceanarium, "Russian village" and other entertainments. Were on winter break, settled in this area specifically, though housing here is expensive

  • Like Russia in the cobblestone streets were as follows. If you go during the day on Sunday quite is often crowded, but the tourists what wasn't what the locals are indistinguishable. Many lined with shopping and dining. Seemed to feel better lit up at night.
