A long worthwhile walk if you have the time. Good vantage points for photo's and lots of cafes as well. There are exquisite cozy 18-19th century mansions from Moscow nobility to view during the walk as well.

The boulevard ring makes for the nice walks. I'm not particularly sure whether it's that green - there are trees lining the both sides of it, but not much grass. If you have limited time, go to Pushkinskaya and walk the Tverskoy boulevard and maybe the Nikitskoy, it will lead you to the Arbat.

Almost quiet place in center but traffic time. You can see Moscow architecture of some last centuries. There is a lot of cafe. Photo and art exhibitions are held in opposite ends of it (Gogolevskiy and Chistoprudniy blvds) in a summertime.

You will see both the best and the ugliest sides. A lot of caffes along the way. And some world famous museums. But the walk is a day long. So choose the good weather.

Staying in Arbat

Neighborhood Profile
Arbat
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.
