If you feel that a piece of your heart belongs to Moscow now and leaving is going to be heartbreaking, these skillfully made porcelain copies of historical Moscow buildings will help you keep memories.
Bolshoi Theater, Church of Ascention in Kolomenskoe, constructivist architecture masterpieces like Melnikov's House and the best examples of Art Nouveau like Gorky's House or Yaroslavsky Railway Station... and even a typical five-story block. Each figurine is made of fine porcelain and hand painted with as many details as possible. Looks like a more exclusive souvenir than another nesting doll, doesn't it? Keep in mind that some items are made by request and their execution may take a couple of weeks.
