In the north east of Moscow, on an area three times the size of that occupied by the Kremlin, fifteen specialised trading areas form a rampantly growing bazaar structure that completely surrounds Izmailovo Stadium and includes all sorts of attractions: from Eurasian wholesale markets to a reconstruction of Tsar Alexander’s wooden palace in the Vernisazh complex, specially erected for tourists and the sale of arts and crafts.

Cherkizovsky Market

‘Purpose-built’ Eurasian market, with rows of stacked containers and Perspex-domed aisles, covering approx. 300,000 sqm.
