Why locals love it

Izmailovsky is a bustling market where hawkers and stall owners vie for the attention of shoppers with rapidly rising decibel levels. It’s a major tourist attraction so you’ll find people from all over the world strolling about the stalls.

Why you should visit it

You can easily spend a whole day wandering the festive streets browsing quirky memorabilia and buying gifts for loved ones. You’ll find everything from knick-knacks to ancient Russian artifacts. The shopkeepers here are becoming increasingly tourist-friendly and don’t mind accepting US dollars should you run out of rubles.

Special tip

Apart from shopping, you can sit and relax at one of the flea market joints and enjoy a Georgian meat kebab and a swig of Russian Vodka or cognac.
