I was there twice in this month and two times were so disappointed. The stuff is so rude. One of the guards closed the door and began to ask his colleagues what was said about these girls (about me and my friend). If I don't...More

Not all books are overpriced! I was looking for complete unabridged ones in English. So, I got each of these books for just 235 rubles (without a discount)! However, Russian Classics translated into foreign languages will be more expensive

Crowds of tourists, both local and international take
in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New
Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt
Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open
to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring
one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds
and turn to the side streets and boulevards where
calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
