Moscow - Arbat & Khamovniki (Chapter)

Nearby, the Khamovniki district positively sparkles, with the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and Novodevichy Convent at either end. Stretching between these two landmarks, the streets are lined with world-class museums and galleries, including the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum, making Khamovniki one of Moscow’s most vibrant art districts.
