Home What to see in Moscow Eliseevsky Grocery Shop

Eliseevsky Grocery Shop


Eliseevsky Grocery Shop
Eliseevsky Grocery Shop

While walking down Tverskaya st. don’t pass by Eliseevsky Grocery shop (14th, Tverskaya St.). Enter the shop and you will find yourself shopping in a museum. Eliseevsky is a legendary grocery shop. It maybe hard to believe but your pictures taken here are going to impress your friends or relatives as much as pictures of the Kremlin and dead Lenin. Ah, sorry, but taking pictures of the revolution leader, even though he is dead, is prohibited.

The shop building was constructed at the end of the 18th century, when Ekaterina the Second ruled over Russia. In the 19th century it was visited by such well-known Russian people as Alexander Pushkin (famous Russian poet), Vasily Zhukovsky (a poet, the father of Russian romanticism), Ivan Turgenev (a writer) as well as Denis Davidov (a hero of anti-Napoleonic War, 1812). You may ask, why was this place so popular? Was the best beef in Moscow sold here? Unfortunately, it wasn’t. This building used to be a palace that was owned by various princely families.

Splendid literary and musical evenings were hosted here by Maria Volkonskaya, the wife of Volkonsky, a famous Russian Decembrist (participant of Decembrist Revolt, 1925). These parties attracted the Russian elite. In 1898 the building was bought by Grigory Eliseev, a millionaire merchant from St Petersberg. He followed his ambition of opening the best-known and the most luxurious grocery shop in Moscow. Immediately the building was hidden under the scaffolding, making citizens wonder what Eliseev was intending to do. When the grocery shop was finally opened three years later, its first visitors were totally enchanted: a huge hall was lighted by massive cut-glass chandeliers, decorated by luxurious molding and gilded décor pieces. After opening then Eliseevsky grocery shop became the most famous shop in Moscow, as well as all over Russia. The counters were filled with delicacies, such as French cheese, oysters, truffles, the freshest caviar and meat. Every visitor could easily smell the local bakery.

Eliseevsky became one of the top-visited places in Moscow. Russians from all over the country came here to buy delicacies or at least to have a look at this legendary grocery shop. Foreigners didn’t leave Moscow before visiting it. Luckily, Eliseevsky survived the Soviet epoch. During the years of overwhelming deficiency, its head Yury Sokolov provided the Russian elite with products that were in short supply. But finally he found himself being arrested and executed by shooting in 1984. Today 14th, Tverskaya St. still has the spirit of old Moscow. Its luxurious interiors continue to stir the imagination of modern more spoilt visitors. Here you can buy highly rated products for a fair price, as well as taking a photo, which is allowed here! Eliseevsky Grocery shop is open 24/7. You would be better avoiding rush hour (from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.) in order to enjoy calmly observing its interior.
