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.

To all of you travelling to Moscow, surfing on Arthur's page debating on whether or not to hire his sevices, my only advice is DO IT! He will show you Moscow under a totally different angle.Not only will you get an in depth run down of what you are seeing,( as Arthur is very knowledgeable) but most of all you will have a fantastic human experience. being a tourist can sometimes get pretty lonely, (nose always burried in guide books, trying to desperately find your way in this maze of a city where the alphabet is not even the same).... But not with Arthur. With him you just have to sit back and enjoy. He will tailor the tour to your needs, sharing every single thing he knows about everything and anything.You will experience warmth, humour and true generosity on top of visiting a beautiful city.
I am recommending him a thousand times, as he will make your trip to Moscow an unforgettable priceless memory.
thank you arthur. You a truly a great man!
