Most honest vendor in Grecheskaya Ploshat (Греческая Площадь)

Grecheskaya Ploshat (Square) (Греческая Площадь)
Behind the Dom Kenegy bookstore is the book, illegal money exchange, and illegal, pirated CD bazaar on Grecheskaya square.

Before independence, a large, dilapidated, three-story apartment building stood on the square. It was torn down after independence. Various problems with funding prohibited any contractor from building. For years this square stood barren. Many argued that the square should remain empty. But in early 2002, a large six-story building began to be built on the square.

Opened in 2001, the Lukomore Mini-reighnok has fewer vendors than the book bazaar across the square. Vendors here tend not to be as honest as the vendors across the street.
