We really loved this street. It is one of the oldest and the most beautiful streets of Moscow. Every building and lane are full of history and Russian soul. We were lucky to be guided there, that's why we learned so much about the history and legends. Also we liked all that cafes and restaurants where you can try Russian... More
There's many different cafes, restaurants, bars, souvenir shops and interesting statues/fountain on this street. It's great to take a walk down there even if you don't go into any places on the street, there's a great atmosphere on this street. There's artists, magicians and other street entertainers that really bring the street alive. It's always busy, especially in summer. They... More
We loved walking down this street. Watched people walking around. Also visited souvenir shop, where we bought some presents for our friends and relatives. A guide told us about history of this district and also showed few lanes with amazing house and churches, which are usually hidden from the tourists. Wonderful street.
This a strip/ pedestrian mall of about 3 blocks that was a mixture of western food options, tourist shops and a few 'Russian' things like a theater.

Nothing real special here from either a historic or tourist shopping perspective. Street performers are working the street, there are a variety of souvenir stalls and the like. If you're looking to buy something Izmailovsky Market is much better.
Old Arbat is a nice and lively street, full of bars, restaurants and souvenir shops. We had a good time, bought some memorabilia (is you eant to get some souvenirs, this is the place) and had lunch at this wonderful soviet restaurant but I can´t remember the name. Nice place to visit!
My husband and I spent a good few hours wandering down here. Some tacky shops but some that sold some good memorabilia. A few bars and cafes to stop and have a drink in and a particularly wonderful soviet restaurant which we cannot remember the name of (it has apparently been mentioned in time out magazine). Well worth a visit... More
We visited the Arbat on a sunny Sunday morning in October. I really couldn't see what was so special, Lots of tourist shops, various artwork for sale, but no real atmosphere. We just went off to the nearby attractions instead.
A great street that is incredibly lively in the evenings! There are also some very nice restaurants and cafes along here. But at night, when the street musicians pitch up, it's a really great place to people-watch and to take in the night!
