GUM, Minsk

(75+ reviews on the web)
Gift & Specialty Shop
At GUM--essentially a department store--peruse the aisles for souvenirs such as Russian dolls and handpainted boxes. The building is a typical example of Socialist Realism and serves as a 20th-century architectural landmark. The department store was built in 1951. It offers clothes, shoes, toys, cosmetics, souvenirs, household appliances, and more. Look for Soviet-style radios or digital Elektronika watches--a must for collectors of kitsch.

  • Will not be an exception and as all say-visited Belarus and, in particular, in Minsk, as if back in youth. Sausage on 3-5 rubles, kopecks, bread and dropped into the GUM and time stopped. Aunties (intentionally say so) in his years walking 40-50, good products at reasonable prices. Walked and enjoyed, and, most importantly, people. They (as I thought) have remained the same, without the ruble in the head. Will definitely be back there and probably more than once.

  • Would also noted supermarket, described in the previous recall. One remark: it is located in the neighbouring from Guma building (23) Go: you won't regret it. At the bottom of the picturesque "sightseeing" type of cafeteria. On the 2 floor of the supermarket. I took the counter the whole smoked cheese "Bialowieza" (photo prikreplju). My home his love, as we have in the stores, he does not appear for several years. Husband scored all sorts of vodkas and balsams. Type ... "the gifts" (though probably lying). Most importantly: culinary Department. Importantly, because something struck me. So, ... chicken, stuffed PANCAKES (photo attach) the first time I tried this dish. For my taste, very remarkable. Too week went as we returned and I TU marvelous chicken recall the abundant sljunootdeleniem))) shark cake. Too delicious! In General, culinary discoveries to you!
