This gigantic bookshop is located on Novy Arbat, one of Moscow's main arteries, full of shops and restaurants, and very close to Old Arbat, the Pushkin Museum, the Lenin Library and the Red Square. Although the area is obviously central,it must be said that this...More

Not all books are overpriced! I was looking for complete unabridged ones in English. So, I got each of these books for just 235 rubles (without a discount)! However, Russian Classics translated into foreign languages will be more expensive

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.
