Also there are trendy cafes and restaurants, bars... More

It is necessarily to walk down this street on foot. This is the story of the city, ancient architecture, shops and restaurants. This streets goes to the Kremlin, where it is possible to continue the tour.

The street is an amazing architectural treasure and houses many interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. During the summer months, a number of restaurants and bars provide outdoor seating, which makes for a very relaxed feel.

a typical touristic street which you find in every town, with some shops, bars, cafe`s and restaurants, we especially liked the iron goat ))) It leads exactly to the Kremlin, so we took a nice homemade lemonade in one of the Pokrovskaya coffee-shops after finishing our excursion over there.

This is central pedestrian street in the city. There are many restaurants, bars, different monuments (postman with bicycle, photographer, russian famous actor Yevgeniy Yevstigneyev, beautiful lady looking in mirror and others) and suvenir shops. Kremlin and river Volga is very close.
