The walk along the Old Arbat is a wonderful journey around the aristocratic Moscow. Old Arbat is a pedestrian street in the city center, one of the oldest, known since the 14th century. Its houses and streets are the history of Moscow.

In the 18th century the Arbat district was chosen by hereditary Russian nobility with sonorous names. In the 19th century, nobility had to give way to wealthy merchants and intellectuals - doctors, lawyers, teachers. Arbat has always been inhabited by artists, poets, actors. Pushkin, Tolstoy, Yesenin, Okudzhava once walked along it, so it is a true symbol of the old Moscow. During the tour you will learn about the history and architecture of the Arbat, its monuments and sights, learn about the Vakhtangov Theater and the Princess Turandot monument, the Pushkin Museum and the construction of the Foreign Ministry.You will be able to sit in a cafe, order your portrait and buy souvenirs, which are presented here in an exceptional variety.
