    Russian chocolate bar
    3 more images

    Russia has a long tradition in producing tasty chocolate. So if you plan to bring gifts for family and friends from your trip to Russia, you should take chocolate into account.

    Among the best brands are "Krasnyi Oktyabr" (Red October) and "Babaevskiy". The latter was established in 1804 and is even said to be the oldest confectionary in Russia.

    The most famous product of company "Krasnyi Oktyabr" is a chocolate known as "Alenka". It can easily be recognised by its packaging with a smiling Soviet girl.

    Russian Chocolate can be bought in one of the countless small grocery stores, which are called "Produkty" and of course also in the big supermarkets (Hyper Market).

    A 100 gram chocolate bar of good quality chocolate sets you back something between 50 and 70 Rubles (2009).

    Calendar: The Golden Ring 2007
    3 more images

    A gorgeous souvenir from Russia is a calendar with photos of a city, region or even local things.

    All over Russia you get typical square size calendars with photos of e.g. St Petersburg at night, Moscow at night, the Golden Ring, Russian birches or the Holy Places of Russia.

    These calendars are available at bookshops, kiosks and sometimes even in souvenir shops. In 2009 these calendars cost something between 150 and 200 Rubles (less than 5 Euro).

    The city of Sergiyev Posad is usually covered in calendars about the Golden Ring or the Holy Places of Russia.

    on the way to the monastery: souvenirs galore

    by globetrott Written Apr 5, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the way from the large carpark for the tourist-coaches to the monastery you will find a large row of souvenir-shops. In the late morning, when we arrived, they had been closed, but on our way back in the early afternoon all shops were open and waiting for customers.

    What to buy: They offer more or less the same kind of souvenirs like in Moscow and we were short in time anyway, so I did not buy anything.

    What to pay: Prices are similar to the ones in Moscow !

    Postcard set

    Collection of 12 postcards

    Although Sergiyev Posad is a relatively popular destination on the so called Golden Ring in the north east of Moscow, I found it difficult to find just some normal postcards to send home.

    I finally ended up buying a full set of 12 postcards for 80 Rubles, as this included the only cards which were white on the backside.

    All other postcards had detailed descriptions on the backside and were therefore useless for posting.
