Russian Market is of far less architectural interest but has a larger and more varied selection of souvenirs, curios, and silks than the Central Market. Like the Central Market, it has a good selection of silver, gold, and jewels, but also carries the huge selection of curios, silks, carvings, etc.

The Russian Market offers the largest selection of bootlegged VCDs, DVDs, and CDs of all of the traditional markets. Most of the CD vendors are located on the south side near the southeast corner of the market. It’s also a good place to buy fabric for business and casual clothes to take to the tailor. Most of what the visitor might want is in the same general area on the south side but the rest of the market is well worth exploring. Food and drink stand in the middle of the market for hygienically adventurous visitors.
