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.

I was in Moscow visiting my girlfriend who is working there for 6 months for a bank. Arthur helped us tremendously - we did a night tour of Moscow (i would highly recommend this) and Arthur's knowledge was first rate. Was a very relaxed tour and was a lot of fun. I would recommend Arthur to anyone and will do so to my friends who may travel to Moscow. Moscow is an interesting and incredible City and having Arthur show us around made our experience all the better.

Kind regards,

Liam

Will see you in a month or so time when back over.

Cheers
