A cute pedestrian street near Red Square which was just nice to stroll at has become a place for non-stop Word Cup 2018 football fans' party. An amazing mix of national colors and languages!

Nice walk, feels like a fairytale – everything shining and sparkling :)) Most of those old tiny streets around the Kremlin turned pedestrian and now look a bit like a happy Disneyland. There is, however, an educational side – this being the very centre of...More

It is good to go there before or after visiting the red square but it has expensive foods. However, you may find cheap food like subway there. If you are seeking a place to hang on, I recommend Arbat street.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.
