Arbat is one of the most popular streets among city guests. However, few people know that in addition to boutiques and restaurants, you can find many interesting and unusual places here. One has only to turn slightly away from the usual route.
The "real" Arbat is a forgotten romance, it's Tsoi's songs, Pushkin's poems and Okudzhava's songs, it's the habitat of many famous writers and theatergoers, as well as the place of events of Bulgakov's novels. This is the Moscow that no longer exists.
On this walk, you'll examine the shocking mansion of the revelry Morozov and find a six-story portrait of Bulgakov. See the Empire-style Church of Athanasius and Cyril and an open-air museum with sculptures by a modern architect. Admire the unusual apartment building in the form of a medieval castle and see the installation in memory of Bulat Okudzhava.
Visiting the Arbat nooks, looking at the old facades of houses and monuments, you'll revive the history and enjoy the atmosphere of the creative Arbat.
