One of the best bookstore in Moscow! Been bying there since I was a kid! They've expanded the place, so basically now you have all second floor for books, with an opportunity for a coffee break with the book that you want to buy! And...More

A must-to-visit place provided you are interested in something more then reading posts on social networks. The vast collection of books (most oč them in Russian) is at you fingertips. Computer book search terminals will help you to locate the exact shelve to look for...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

Visited on the last day in Moscow just before departure for last minute shopping, the impression was unfortunately not quite magnificent..... because I expected something similar to the Dom Knigi @ St Petersburg where so many attractive goods were sold as souvenir (postcards, calendars, magnets,...More

If book stores can be bad, so is this one. It's difficult to navigate and over-priced, shop assistants are unfriendly and incompetent - don't expect anyone to speak English. It really surprises me, that anyone would go there voluntarily, when there are so many other,...More

It's fun spending hours in here looking at the huge selection of books. Russians love to read and you can see them all on the metro reading although the electronic readers are more popular. Try and get someone to show you the antique books. Books...More

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.
