Izmailovsky Market, Moscow

3.6
#3 of 152 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.

  • Filled with everything from old war weapons, furs, to crafts, to ... what you can come up with ... I highly recommend going there on Saturday or Sunday as mid-week much work elsewhere and you will find many banks will be closed called from any where to buy the goods for advice before buying anything take a full tour and then maybe come back

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.
