Arbat street is the main pedestrian street in Moscow with a lot of souvenir shops, cafes and museums. The word “Arbat” is derived from the Turkic language and means a suburb. In the medieval period it was really a suburb of Moscow but from the 18th century many noblemen decided to settle down here. From 1974 Arbat has become a pedestrian street. There are many interesting places on this street and in the surrounding area: the House-Museums of Pushkin and  Bely (Russian poets), the G-Spot Museum, the  Museum of the History of Corporal Punishments, the Museum of Optical Illusions, statues of Bulat Okudzhava (Russian bard),  a statue of Princess Turandot, an original nineteenth-century wooden house, the cylindrical  house of the famous Soviet architect Melnikov, the Viktor Tsoy Wall (in memory of the first Russian rock musician) and many others. So this place is full of unusual things and we can show them to you!
