Tourist Guide to MOSCOW - Ismailovsky Park


Ismailovsky Park is the place to be if u want to buy cheap souveniers in moscow. It's located at the metro partizanskaya/Ismailovsky Park. The name Ismailovsky came from the name Ismail - must be a muslim. I dont know which Ismail is that, it doesnt really matter actually. The only downside of this place is that- it's located quite far from the moscow city. Which explain why are the souveniers here are cheaper compared to the souvenier shops in arbat which located in the center of moscow city

Plus, u have to walk around 1 km to reach this market from the metro station. Location wise - not strategic at all , but the price is really a lot cheaper. Since we were pretty free and we needed to buy quite a few souveniers, we went here to buy some. To enter the souvenier market, u have to pay 10 rubles each for the entrace fee.
U can buy all kind of souvenier from the market. From matroshka to the used astronaut helmet. I'm not kidding. U could even by the stuffs from the world war 1! The market is well built , made to look like a traditional village.
Shida is looking at the amber. The ambers here are cheap compared to other places in the world. Some ppl came to moscow just to buy this amber. ME? I'm not a big fan of this stuff.
Some old russians "mak cik" singing the traditional russian songs at the market. They made the place more lively. It was really hot that day actually and I really pity them. I walked for about 10 mins around the market and I already felt dehydrated. I dont know how these old folks managed to stand there for hours!
That's me.... not so smily face becoz the sun was burning me down. They are still selling fur hat and clothing even thou it's summer now in moscow.
Shida is busy looking and buying souveniers. Me? busy snapping photos and looking around. Let's the lady does the job rite :)
