Gypsy Travels to Moscow, Russia

The Russian capital never ceases to inspire, confound and delight its visitors in some unexpected way. The city of extremes: on one hand is its remarkable past, while on the other hand you can see the capital city buzzing with the energy typical of the 21st century. This combination only increases the intrigue called Moscow, and beckons you even more.

Our Gypsy girl, Yulia Popkova, takes us on walk around one of the flea markets in this city of treasures of the days gone.

Get ready to feast your eyes on the most random findings you can dream of…

A trip to a flea market is more than shopping, it’s more adventurous than sport. It’s an excursion into unknown… because you never know what you might find amongst the piles of other people’s unwanted goods.

Nowhere else in the city are the national characteristics manifested so clearly. It’s the old clashing with the new; the mixture of everything and everyone; the lively atmosphere and vigour…

Let’s take a look on some of the amazing findings and treasures…

Russian flea markets are not a place where goods are organised to hang in rows, each with attached price tag. They are a place where there are no rules or order; they are a place where goods are sold for the best price offered and to the lucky buyer who finds them amongst others… It’s a real treasure hunt!

Flea market is a rare opportunity to see and purchase in one place goods belonging to different eras and having a very different purpose.
