If you’re looking for the best thing to bring home from Moscow for friends and family, our Forbes Travel Guide editors suggest seeking out Russian souvenirs such as the stackable matrushka doll. You can find good prices and selection on a variety of sizes at Moscow’s large flea market, Izmailovo, just outside the center. Old Soviet propaganda posters, also found in Izmailovo, make another interesting gift, though you’ll pay more for originals. Or for something even more out of the ordinary, take home a pair of felted boots, called valenki, which keep toes toasty even in the harshest of Russian winters.
