“Arbat street, Moscow”
The Moscow Metro is one of the largest in the world, spanning over 185 miles in length. It is also one of the most historic and artistic opening in 1935 and covered with socialist realist art.
Not only ride this fantastic underground experience but stroll along the Arbat, Moscow’s most charming and lively street. As the old bohemian quarter, it is crammed full with cafes and vibrant artistic stalls and independent shops selling traditional gifts, canvases and trinkets with street performers dotted along the busy street.
There are all sorts of foods and snacks to try along the way in the many different restaurants, including French and Lebanese food and a genuine 1950s American Diner. Documented as far back a 1493 in the city’s chronicles, it is a prominent part of Russian history. It was this year that the Arbat held the start of the horrendous fire that ruined the city, said to have been sparked by a candle in the Church of St. Nicholas in Peski.
