We went on a Friday and only found 3 shops open, all selling the same usual souvenirs. It does seem a popular location for weddings and wedding photography, plus there are a few restaurants.

Izmailovsky Market is the place to go to by souvenirs in Moscow. The market is huge. However, if you don’t go on the weekend, you will most... More

This market is a good place for getting some cheap souvenirs. It's in a cool complex with a mini Kremlin, which all looks like an old Soviet theme park, a cool thing to see! There was not that many stalls selling stuff when I was there but perhaps this was just because I was there on New Years eve which... More

But it's tourist mixed with bear pelts ,taxidermy deers,military weapons modern fine art, brass 100 year old clocks for the equivalent of about 4 pound and everything you can think of. It's in an old Kremlin and almost... More

After the taxi ripped off(yellow taxi taken from GUM shopping mall) which cost us around £60 to get to the market- the first impression was not as we have expected after reading all the comments here. Souvenirs are the same everywhere you go maybe a bit cheaper in market but if you compare the amount of money you spent to... More

Very touristic place. A lot of period pieces of 20 century, including quire good furniture, samovars, are on the top floure. Handicraft and hand-made souvenirs ( paloposki shawls, wood carving..), Red Army souvenirs ( helmets, uniform). Good place for looking and time-spending. Wood Kremlin is a great decoration for taking photo.

This was a great spot to stock up on traditional Russian souvenirs at great prices (be ready to bargain). What was really special was exploring the antique market at the back of the section that was filled with original soviet tat. Eg icons, fabrics, pins, Jewelry, dolls, military bits. We got a taxi to save effort and time and it... More
