GUM, Moscow

4.3
#1 of 992 in Shopping in Russia
Blending modern shopping with history and architecture, GUM remains the country's largest shopping mall. Constructed during the 1890s, the trapezoidal building combines elements of traditional Russian and 19th-century English architecture, including a steel framework and glass roof. A major feat of engineering, the structure gets most of its illumination from giant arched skylights, each one containing more than 20,000 panes of glass. The centrally located mall houses about 200 upscale boutiques, selling internationally known clothing brands, household goods, jewelry, sports equipment, cosmetics, and souvenirs. The building's ground level offers access to cafes, restrooms, and ATMs. Put GUM on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Moscow tour itinerary planner.

  • The GUM mall is a beautiful place with unique design and climate. Food services at the top level seems overpriced but in the end this is strict city center. I believe that it is great place to visit after seeing the Red Square as it is a very characteristic and interesting place. When I visited some watermelons were placed in the main fountain. I have no idea why.
  • It's a very unique and chic mall. It has a different style than the rest that I have seen. The stores are compact with each other. There are a lot of cafes, dessert place where you can go to here to eat and hang with your friends while walking around the Red Square. The ice cream that we got here was really good.
