It really doesn’t matter how much you’re ready to spend on a souvenir - whether $3 or $3,000. In Russia, you can find something interesting at any price.

Flea markets, street sellers, and souvenir shops - upon arrival in Russia you won’t have a problem finding a place to buy souvenirs to take home. But how to choose from millions of options available?

Take the Izmailovsky market, for instance: it’s considered one of the best locations to buy souvenirs in Moscow, but one can get confused with a vast array of Russian curiosities sold there and risk buying something boring or overpriced.
