Arbat can rightly be called the main Moscow Street. And not because it is the largest or Central Metropolitan artery. Not at all. Muscovites and guests of the capital value it for its unique charm, standing architectural samples of past eras, for its freedom and romance, which the street artists and musicians personify, for its unique spirit of old Moscow, which is noble and intelligent. Many homes of the Arbat are linked to the history and life of great Russian people and preserve their names. Indeed, the Arbat is a unique place.

The Moscow Zoo was founded more than a century and a half ago. From the outset, on the site of today's Zoo were breeding ponds in which all kinds of fish were bred. At the end of the 18th century, near the Presnenskii ponds began to appear the menagerie, which of course was not like the current one, but already at that time pleased the whole population of Moscow with their inhabitants. The organizer of the Moscow Zoo was Tsar Alexander II, who gave the new Zoo an elephant, and allowed everyone to bring animals to the Zoo.

You can get acquainted with some of Moscow's sights by completing a tour of Moscow on a Double-decker bus with a transparent roof.  An excursion on a "Double-decker" bus is one of the ways to see the city from a height of several meters (about 12 ft.).
