In each city with a long history there is such a street, a magnet for tourists – soaked in special spirit, with houses and lanes, each of which tells a fascinating history. In Moscow, it is a well-known Arbat Street – one of the oldest streets in Moscow. Today, Arbat street in Moscow is as important landmark, as the Red Square, the Bolshoi Theater and St. Basil’s Cathedral.
Arbat street interesting, perhaps, the fact that it is not frozen historic monument, but a living, constantly changing space. Since 1986, the street is fully dedicated to pedestrians. Traditionally, there are the street performers, the artists draw cartoons in abundance, and Russian souvenirs.
