Izmailovsky Market, Moscow

4.0
#2 of 63 in Shopping in Moscow
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.

  • Characteristic market for crafts, antiques, icons (not exported!), porcelain, rich and picturesque. Next a Kremlin equally picturesque with the succession of access of couples and invited to their wedding. To visit. By taxi from the center of Moscow with 7 Euro.

  • Market which is reached by the new circular from the third ring. Place where you can find everything, from Chinoiserie to immense spaces for all kinds of old things, paintings, ceramics and everything that can be found from the classic "American pickers" who's your thing I highly

  • It is located in the parking lot of the plaza of Izmailovo and we can find all the crafts and gifts typical Russian. It is the ideal place to ask for discount and get a good price for quality handicrafts. At the time that we were not had many open positions, I guess that is designed for the weekends when there's a lot more inflow of public. In spite of this, we find several positions in which to compare different offers.

  • If you're in Moscow and haven't yet gotten that 'Soviet' feeling, head on over to this market. Weekdays are apparently quieter, but there are still a fair amount of merchants open. It's a little hike from the metro station, but worth it. Definitely a departure from ritzy, rich central Moscow. Great place to pick up some souvenirs - don't forget to bargain!
  • One of the most authentic sights from our visit to Moscow. It's a train ride of the city, which is by itself a good thing. The main entrance is mostly full of souvenir stalls for tourists (which, incidentally, are cheaper than in the city center), but beyond that you can get lost in what is a big flee market within what used to be an amusement park. The run-down park, old folks and communist memorabilia make it a very interesting place to visit and shop around.
  • Love it. Walk and explore the old atmosphere of Russia thru the goods people sell here. From new to old and very old. Many old people sell goods made by themself. I got some car model and super hero model from here.
  • It is not too large flea market than I expected. Just spread around 1.5 hour to walk around. But there are a couples BBQ food station you may try. The pork is so juicy.
  • Great deals on souvenirs. Best to have a Russian speaker help you get good deals. Bargain!

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
