Red Square - G.U.M. - Gosudarstevemy Universahy Magazin, Moscow: 34 reviews and 68 photos
The GUM Department Store is something not entirely new... its architcecture reminds of the turn of the century train stations of Paris and London. And yet, it's a department store.
The GUM Department Store has had highs, lows, and then highs again. Between 1890 and 1893 Alexander Pomerantsev built it, making room for over 1200 stalls and shops.
During the communist time shops stood empty of items to buy, and full of people eager to lay their hands on them. Today it's filled with very expensive and elegant boutiques and designer stores.
Directions: in the red square, on the right (with saint basil behing your back)
