Arbat

Interesting
After the nobility, writers and artists began moving to Arbat, it became the Muscovite equivalent of Paris's St-Germain. Now both working class and aristocratic, the area has preserved something of its former charm despite some unfortunate urban planning decisions. Don't miss the museum-houses of different artists and writers, and the mansions on Pretchistenka Street.
