To date, there are several bookstores in Moscow that specialize in selling literature in English and other languages, or have a decent foreign books section. In comparison with the 90th, now there are many more English-reading book lovers in the Russian capital. And this fact prompts the bookstore owners to enlarge their supply of contemporary foreign literature, offering not only the school classics, but a good selection of fiction and non-fiction bestsellers, and several new business editions.

Moscow “Dom Knigi”, “Biblio-Globe” and “Moskva” are giant, labyrinthine bookstores with huge selections in their foreign books sections, while “Respublika” and “Bookberry” are more modern, trendy and stylish bookstores. Some business editions are more expensive in Moscow than in many places abroad. In this case, if you don’t mind waiting and are interested in saving your penny, it’s possible to order from Amazon, but firstly, better visit the following bookstores and enjoy the variety they offer.
