This is the Meshchansky & Basmanny chapter from Lonely Planet’s Moscow guidebook.

Covering a large swathe of central Moscow, Meshchansky is markedly laid-back compared with its neighbouring districts. Beyond the Garden Ring, Basmanny is an area of 19th-century red-brick factories, now taken over by innovative postmodern galleries, cool cafes and digital startups.

  • maps
  • descend 60m underground to explore the Cold War communications centre at Bun-ker-42
  • transport
  • stock up on junk souvenirs and Soviet paraphernalia at Izmaylovsky Market
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
