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?
