The Beautiful Art City Towers

The Beautiful Art City Towers

This picture I took on one lovely summer morning in 2006 walking around the area of the famous flea market in Moscow...

The towers of the Kremlin in Izmailovo attracts many tourists who come to make shopping on the famous Vernisazh (or Art City, Craft Market), where customers can find a wide range of Russian souvenirs at the best prices in city. Big market with a lot of vendors is only during weekends, but if you came on Wednesday, you might be lucky to buy a favorite gift for you and the price will be even cheaper as usual. On this day many of artists and craftsmen sell their works wholesale to the vendors who have the same business in different places of Moscow city, as like Old Arbat or Sparrow Hills, or even they will be reselling the same goods here at the end of the week.

From the time when these beautiful towers of the Kremlin in Izmailovo were founded in 1990s and later was built a miniature of the stronghold of Russian town from mediaeval times, it was many fires in this wooden fortress and on the market. In 2006, almost all buildings inside the Kremlin were reconstructed and now they look as like brand new. When I walked inside this impressive Russian wooden fortress with my clients, many of them told me that they have feeling of being in Russian Disney Land.

I contacted Arthur as recommended by a user on the Lonely Planet Thorntree forum. My nephew and I had a 9 hour layover at Moscow's Sheremetyevo 2 airport while traveling from a primary vacation in the Middle East. We preferred to tour Moscow rather than sit at the airport for 9 hours. I arranged for Arthur to pick me up at the airport and provide a quick tour of the major attractions. I realized this was risky given Moscow's notorious traffic problems. Our flight landed an hour late in Moscow. I called Arthur while still on the plane on the runway ready to cancel the arrangements because of the late arrival. However, he convinced me that we still had enough time. He took back roads into Moscow to avoid the horrendous freeway traffic and was still able to provide us with a two hour + walking tour of the Red Square/Kremlin area with a quick Metro tour thrown in. Arthur definitely knows the city well--both from a historical and navigational standpoint. I am glad he convinced me to leave the airport--the short tour was definitely a highlight of our week. I would definitely use him again and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a driver and/or tour guide in Moscow.
