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.

Arthur speaks good english, is dependable and informative about the histoiry and living today in Russia, not just tourist sites. He is a wonderful photographer and assists you with getting the best shots. As a single, 72 yr. old woman, I felt completely safe with his excellent driving and capable organization. He even helped me purchase a new camera, something I could not have done on my own in a place where no
English was spoken. I am recommending Arthur to all my traveling friends. His services are reasonable and he is an excellent guide.
