Matreshkas on the Old Arbat

Matreshkas on the Old Arbat

The traditional symbol of russian culture is Matreshka (also spelled Matryoshka), which is a set of nesting dolls. Most of them are exclusive author's works made by famous russian artists. Every doll (except the last one, the smallest) consists of two parts. The smaller doll inserts into the bigger one. Thus dolls (sometimes up to 30) can be combined inside the biggest doll - Matreshka. The size of the biggest doll can run up to 15 inches whereas the smallest - 0,1 inches! All dolls are made from natural wood.

We spent four amazing days in Moscow with Arthur as our guide. Arthur made ours the trip of a lifetime. From his superior pre-planning assistance with tours and tickets to his excellent knowledge about the history and modern culture of Moscow Arthur met and exceeded our expectations. He is very professional, speaks excellent english, and is willing to adapt to individual likes and needs. I highly recommend Arthur to anyone traveling to Moscow. We would definitely use his services again if we visited Moscow in the future.
