Stroll down Arbat Street, lined with trees, lamps of cast iron and lots of benches make the street cosy and comfortable. There are clothing shops, bookstores, a photo gallery, and jewelry shops. There's even an Irish Pub! (I didn't go inside, so I don't know the story there...)
I suggest the Opera House, Moledzhdi Moda (Young Persons Mode), Targovi Center, The underground store, Then English Club (all russians who speak english) have meetings across from the Tech. University, there meetings were kind of fun...
All up and down Arbat Street in February, you can see ice sculptures of birds, angels, people, or as you can see here, funny little kids.
This is dedicated to a young boy "Orlyonok" who fought in the Red Army during the Civil War of 1920s and died as a hero.
