Love this street..it has shops, restaurants, bars, historical parts leading to the Kremlin. Traditional restaurants..and the usual American franchises. You would need a translator to read menus or know some Russian.

A vibrant area where everyone enjoys whatever they like- if is an ice cream, a lemonade, a pub or the amazing street performers! The place is full of people coming up and down to and from Kremlin.
