Beautiful art deco building that houses this market. Well organised, with each of the 4 wings organised into selling items closely related to each other. It's good, but it feels like it's for tourists here - prefer the Russian Market.

Found everything we needed for gifts to family and friends. Decent prices and wide variety of goods. Many of them seem to be couterfact products so be careful with branded items.

I read a lot of good words about this place before I came, but was a bit let down after visiting it. It was more like a touristic place than a genuine market. The stalls were quite closely packed with only a narrow path for...More
