Concierge.com's insider take:

Part flea market, part exquisite crafts fair, Izmailovo (located behind the Izmailovo Hotel) is the one-stop shopping mecca for souvenirs from Russia and the former Soviet Union. The selection is endless—everything from lacquer boxes to Orenburg goat-down shawls, Turkmen carpets, Soviet watches and, naturally, matryoshki (nesting dolls) are on display at the vernisazh, as it's called. The grounds have been turned into a kind of Russian Disneyland, with a re-creation of an ideal Russian town (featuring a vodka museum; www.vodkamuseum.ru). But to get there you have to pass through a gauntlet of impromptu merchants, including hard-up pensioners selling Soviet trinkets. Sometimes treasures can be found there too.

Open daily 9 am to 6 pm.
