Where to get Cheburashka doll + souvenirs for reasonable prices?

by lostvikings

Privet!

May you know any "exact" place in St. Petersburg where my friend could buy a Cheburashka doll and maybe other Cheburashka-related stuff for me? I am also interested in places where you can buy souvenirs (especially interested in T-shirts) for reasonable prices?

Thanks for your replies in advance!

Cheburashkas of all sorts have been industrially produced since the very popular children book and cartoon were released in 1970s. Still now you can find it in the big stores selling children goods, usually called "Detskiy mir" - 'Children World' (there must be one in St. Pete).

Search the net for Cheburashka related goods, you can always find some stuff. Like this for instance:

Last time I bought one in underground pedestrian crossing on a Garden Ring just in front of MID - Ministry of International Affairs. There were choice of different size from 50 r. to 300 r. Quite the same price I saw in an underground cross under Lubyanskaya sq. (assume that you want to cross square from KGB building to "Children's World store") and at the entrance to the metro staition Kitai-Gorod.

I think that prize for these kind of toys in big bazars can be higher that in the streets, but I am not sure.

Pavel, I am afraid they are going to St. Pete, while you are talking of Moscow... ;-)

You can buy souvenirs at the shoping center "Gostiny Dvor". Some people think that it's expensive store but I saw some souvenirs a little less then at the market near Saviour-on-Blood Cathedral. And on the 1st floor (Sadovaya Line) at this center there is a large department with children goods - I think you can ask Cheburashka-doll there. This shoping center is located in the very center of the city - the metro station "Gostiny Dvor" ("Nevsky Prospect" station is located at the same site).

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Bridges ~ Repair Work

by Canadienne

There was restoration work of every kind going on during our visit ~ we could only assume it was in preparation for the 300th Anniversary celebrations (an ssumption that was confirmed in the English language weekly, St. Petersburg Times). While much of the restoration consisted only of a coat of paint, it was interesting to see how they protected the bridge workers and their newly gilded sections.

Anichkov Palace

by bugulma

The name of the palace, built in 1741-1754 by Zemtsov. Dmitriev and Rastrelli architects, is bound up with Anichkov Bridge near by. It is very interesting to know owners of the palace. The first one was Razumovsky, the favorite of Elizaveta Empress, then Potemkin, the Ekaterina II's favorite. Then it was family palace of Romanovs, the Emperor family. In the beginning of XIX century Aleksander I Emperor gave the palace as a gift to his brother Nikolay's marriage, the future Russian Emperor. However Nikolay I made Hermitage his residence and in Anichkov Palace his son, the future Emperor Alexander II was brought up. Then in 1881 Alexander III, Russian Emperor made the palace the main residence. In soviet time it was House of Pioneers, nowadays it is the House of Youth.

Babushka

by sophiebeans

This is the grandmother of the friend I stayed with. Her name is Dina. She is quite a woman! Although she has a lot of ailments, she is still very self-sufficient. She made us large, delicious meals every day - better than you could ever hope to get in a restaurant! I barely knew any Russian and she barely knew any English, so if my friend wasn't around to interpret for us, Babushka would pull out her Russian-to-English dictionary and write me little notes. Otherwise, we would try to communicate through pantomiming to each other. She was a wonderful lady with a great sense of humor. It was a treat to be able to meet her and spend time with her!

Fedorovsky Village

by mikelisaanna

The Fedorovsky Village is an abandoned complex of large buildings in Tsarskoye Selo, about 20 miles outside of St. Petersburg. The buildings housed the troops that guarded the royal family and their entourage while they were staying at their summer palaces in Tsarskoye Selo. It was heavily damaged in World War II and has only recently begun to be restored. As a result, it is not open to the public. However, you can drive by it on an unpaved road and photograph it through the fence that surrounds it.

Dolphinarium

by sennaya

The Dolphinarium has multiple Dolphin and Beluga shows in a day .
Held in a colorful former olympic training pool converted for Dolphins.
They swim, jump, talk and get you wet if you sit in the first row :)
