Russian Charlie & the
Eliseevy Merchants' Shop8
Why locals love it
It's the most famous and the oldest russian "gastronome" which is located in the centre of the city in the Nevsky prospect. The shop is amusing even from the outside because the building itself is beautiful and old and at the shop window you can see sort of a mechanized puppet show which is fascinating! And the atmosphere inside is enchanting!
Why you should visit it
If you want to experience the atmosphere of an "old" russian shop and if you are interested in purchasing some unique and very beautiful desserts , handcrafted chocolate and fresh bakery, exclusive alcohol and much more!
Make sure you've eaten before you enter the shop otherwise you will want to buy and eat everything inside!
