Travelling to Moscow is a perfect opportunity for some retail therapy, and its shopping facilities range from independent boutiques to high-end luxury furriers and jewellers. If you’re looking for luxury outlets, head to Petrovka Boulevard, regarded as Moscow’s equivalent of Rodeo Drive. Here you’ll find diamond bangles, full-length sable coats, and exceptional Russian antiques.
However, if your budget is a little smaller, then Moscow has plenty of markets, malls and boutiques to explore. Popular shopping malls in the city include Okhotny Ryad, Gorod and GUM. For souvenir shopping, try Izmaylovo Market for traditional Russian crafts, particularly wood carvings.
