I travel here often in order to find unique gifts at great prices. It really has some interesting features too! A toy museum, a bread museum, and a picturesque square on the upper level.

I stayed at Best Western Vega Hotel when in Izmailovsky. There is a shopping mall with foodcourt and supermart within 3 minutes walk from the hotel.. The Izmailovsky flea market is a stone throw away from my hotel too. I bought my first 2 pocket watches at an Aviator shop in the market! The Molnija watches cost Py 2000 each.

As a student, this is the first go to place to get souvenirs to be brought back home. You can find absolutely anything here...from traditional air packed dishes to modern art ready to be shipped back to your hometown. Opening prices are a little high but with with a little bit of bargaining skills, you are good to go. Bargaining... More

I went to this market without any expectations, but even if it's basically a souvenir market it's really nice and typical. Here you can find Russian souvenirs like dolls, hats, watches or military stuff for a really small price. Always bargain here.

If you're looking for souvenirs with good price and some treasures from the flea market, this is the place to go. Near the metro Partizanskaya (dark blue line). It can be quite chilly and windy on autumn/winter, prepare warm clothes if you plan to browse all the section in the market since it has lots and lots and almost neverending... More

This is definitely a one-stop center for tourist shopping. It is a colourful market with all sorts of souvenirs, art works and traditional decorative items. Adjacent flea market is equally if not more interesting. Old coins, medals of honor, wares, religion decorations, toys, animal hides, amber and more. I arrived at 8.30am on Saturday when traders were still setting up.... More

After leaving the Partizanskaya Metro Station, look for the towers of the Izmailovsky Kremlin, head north past the Alpha/Beta etc buildings towards the entrance of the (rather big) market. Interesting old and new stuff can be bought here: fur hats, weapons, antiquities etc.

having read a few of the reviews below, I was expecting a rickety tourist trap flea market - and that's pretty much it. If you want to get some 'cheap' souvenirs, or even some reasonably priced gifts, it's definitely worth the trip. If you want to get some 'good' priced crafts, do your research first (lots of carvings, icons, paintings,... More
