  1. Grocery Store Eliseevsky: In 1901, Moscow merchant Grigory Eliseev opened the luxurious Eliseevsky store at the intersection of Tverskaya Street and Kozitsky lane. The grocery store was housed in a historical building from the 18th century. The grocery store became famous because for its rich interior in neo-baroque style and because of its exotic goods and wines

           The store is loved both by Moscow residents and guests of the city. It is a proper supermarket, and it is a unique treat to know that we can run our mundane errands in such a beautiful place.
