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.

My husband John and I spent three days with Arthur in July 2008 before going on a boat trip on the Volga river. Arthur helped us with tickets for the Bolshoi Ballet, showed us the sights, and took us to off the beaten track restaurants. He drove us to our boat on the last day in Moscow. We would definitely use Arthur again in Moscow and are pleased to recommend his services to other visitors.
