The Gosudarstvenny Universalny Magazin (State Department Store), or GUM as it is more conveniently known, is located on the northeastern side of Red Square.

It is certainly not your average department store….it is much more beautiful! Three stories high, the centre has a glass roof that really makes this place special, along with a central fountain.

There are several cafes and plenty of up-markets shops to browse in, along with more affordable options.

It is not just a place to shop, but also a magnificent building…and what a location - right on Red Square.

Address: Occupies the northeastern side of Red Square
Directions: Nearest Metro: Ploshad Revolutsii
