  • The huge central square, where the main tourist destinations. Here you and the Kremlin, and a large and Chkalovskaya Serpukhovskaya staircase. Everything is close by.

  • We often visited Samarkand by Oktyabrskoy. But the restaurant on Minin-it's not even the heir! ((((bad all! Green Samsa, wine with a terrible smell of alcohol! Relaxed service and lack of dishes on the menu! Doubt that they even survive Minina pl a couple of months.
