Discover Arbat district Russia

West of Moscow, in the oldest part of Arbat, once much frequented by artists and poets, you'll find pleasant and bustling little streets where the Muscovites like to stroll in the evening. It's the 'Montmartre' of Moscow. The newer part is more business orientated, with modern shops and huge buildings.
