Ivanovo textile goods are sold all over Russia and are considered as a great mixture of high quality and reasonable price.
Besides shopping around, you must certainly visit various sites. They are mainly Russian traditional architecture, ethnography, and art. You can cover most of them in just a couple of days, so don't miss the Ivanovo Wooden Church, Museum of the Local Lore, Printed Cotton Museum, and the Soviet Car Industry museum. You will also be pleased by a peaceful atmosphere if you walk by the streets in late spring or summer when the weather is warm and sunny.
