Walk along the Arbat street with Alexander Ivanov
Alexander Ivanov invites you for a walk along the Arbat and adjacent alleys. Arbat is not only a pedestrian street with lanterns, cafes, artists and bright old houses. This is an entire network of picturesque lanes with textured passable courtyards. Of course, the Arbat yards have already changed a lot since the time when Polenov wrote his famous painting. But much remains. Arbat
Arbat is an interlacing of different epochs. We will see a patterned church of the 17th century, a quaint wooden house, and a masterpiece of constructivism – Melnikov’s house. We’ll view the fake steeple of the Stalin Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the house with the knight and a number of profitable houses in the Art Nouveau style with well-preserved authentic details. We won’t leave behind the “a set of teeth of Moscow” – the modernism of the New Arbat. And how many known names are associated with the Arbat – in spades. The honeymoon of Pushkin, the family passions of Ogarev and Herzen, the sculptor Konenkov on the barricades, the adventures of the American diplomats, Victor Choi on the wall, Okudzhava from the off-beat Arbat, the last address of the poet Blok and much more.
