Shopping Malls

The GUM shopping mall is a landmark in Moscow's Red Square. It occupies the majority of the historic square's east side with a facade stretching the length of two and a half football fields. The Gum (pronounced as 'goom') department store was built over a hundred years ago and is a testament to the expertise of late nineteenth century Russian architecture. With the looks of a royal palace this mall is a fitting addition to the numerous gems surrounding the Red Square.

The magnificent interiors comprise three elegantly designed floors with a glass roofed central courtyard spanning the whole length of the GUM. The floors are connected by bridges giving the whole area a graceful look associated with the finest buildings of yesteryear. At the centre of the complex is a lovely fountain that has served for decades both as a favourite meeting place and a popular photo opportunity.

Moscow's GUM (each former soviet city had its own GUM) is today full of flagship stores with the most recognised brands from around the world. Apart from retail outlets, GUM also offers space for dining, cafes, exhibitions, galleries, leisure activities and cultural events.

Considering the beauty of this historic complex, the GUM in Moscow must be one of the most popular shopping malls in the country that doubles up as a great tourist attraction.
