Russia has a lot of characteristic products and souvenirs. Some of the best known are the matrioskas, the classic Russian dolls filled with smaller replicas. Porcelain is also very sought after, for its folkloric motifs and for the fact it is hand painted. The best known is that of Lomonosov, the first porcelain factory in the country that served the Tsars.
Other items that can not be missed are caviar, a Russian speciality; animal furs, and the country's own varied crafts.
The best place to go shopping in Russia is the capital, Moscow, where there are several shopping centres and specialized stores, such as those found in Arbat Street or in the Izmailovo street market. Also Saint Petersburg, where Gostiny Dvor department stores stand out for their prices, or Sennya Square, where some shopping centres and small shops with souvenirs, food and fashion are concentrated.
