Stoleshnikov Lane is another one of the most expensive places to shop in Moscow, along with Tverskaya Street, Tretyakovski Passage and Barvikha. Interestingly, Stoleshnikov Lane is pedestrian street, a rarity in the Russian capital. Stoleshnikov Lane leads to Petrovka - one of the main streets in central Moscow since the 19th century, and one of the city’s oldest. It was in the 19th century that Petrovka gained its reputation as one of Moscow centres for establishments selling elite clothing and luxury goods. As well as offering numerous opportunities for good shopping, a walk down the Petrovka will provide you with a chance to see some of the most important cultural landmarks in Moscow and in Russia as a whole, most notably the Bolshoi Theatre. Every visitor to Moscow should visit the Old Arbat and the New Arbat, two of Moscow’s older streets. Located close to the Kremlin, both streets are also known for their fashionable boutiques. The Old Arbat has become one of the most popular places for foreign visitors, and the Arbat has taken a leaf from Hollywood’s book and started its own Avenue of the Stars. The Old Arbat became a pedestrian zone in 1968 and is a favorite among Muscovites and visitors to the city, thanks mainly to the way it captures the charm and spirit of old Moscow. There are also good opportunities for shopping
