Izmailovsky Market, Moscow

(3.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Bargain for good deals on traditional Russian souvenirs at Izmailovsky Market. The vendors sell all kinds of Russian knick-knacks, including the popular "matryoshki," or nesting dolls. Negotiate to get the best prices on lacquer boxes, used books, and Soviet porcelain dolls. Hunt for authentic Soviet memorabilia, such as army belts and gas masks. Even if you're not in the market for souvenirs, take time to wander the aisles of stalls--it's a cultural experience.

  • If you came with other cities or more from other countries, select day for a walk on the Izmajlovskomu vernisazhu, here you can buy anything with regard to Russian culture. Souvenirs, trinkets, old or even valuable books, paintings, clothing and so on. Or not to buy anything, but idly observe everything and these trinkets seen ...

  • A must-see place for collectors and buyers of souvenirs and typical things. Adem {as you can eat and explore the history of the USSR. Past and present mixed. Don't forget to visit him. I was a Sunday and everything ok. Line 3 of the underground from the Plaza of the revolution, in addition to step going seeing subway stations recommended by its architecture.

  • One of the biggest Flea markets bustling with amazing wares.. Fur caps, paintings, china, collections of old stamps n coins and what not. Couple it with some intriguing museums like the one on vodka & it's history, it's a forenoon well spent on a weekend in Moscow
  • Vast area, mostly empty in October, and in the afternoons. Go early to see the market trader stalls open. Work was going on to repair and rebuild in isolated areas, and attached to the flea market was an area of cultural interest such as the musuem of bread and the muesum of chocolate [oh and vodka]. Many weddings take place here, and so you will see many wedding parties if you stay any length of time.
  • This market has everything. I found many Christmas presents for friends as well as a few things for myself. Sunday was not crowded.
  • Amazing infrastructure where we saw many locals taking wedding photos too! Flea market was also very interesting, many locals and prices were much cheaper than arbat street
  • It's a market, but I since I wasn't interested in shopping, I considered it more a museum. There's a lot of stuff! All kinds: from kitschy touristy things (like Matryoshka dolls galore) to clothes to old maps and posters to Soviet-era coins and pins and so so so much more. You can easily spend hours looking at the interesting wares of the many vendors. People here are kind, as they should be because, of course, they want your money. Enjoy!
