 Russia Moscow The Arbat District Variant Guide

English

The Arbat is the street which has become the symbol of old Moscow for all Russians. In October 1993, the Arbat celebrated its 500th anniversary. It was first mentioned in a chronicle in 1493, when on 28 July a terrible fire, which started from a candle at the Church of St. Nicholas in Peski, ravaged Moscow. This story led to a famous Moscovite saying: "A penny candle razed Moscow to the ground."
