GUM, Minsk

2.8
#3 of 17 in Shopping in Belarus
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.

  • Who was not in the Department store of the USSR. 4 floors. It is also one of the few places where you can buy Belarusian souvenirs and magnets for adequate price. On the ground floor there is a small grocery store, shoes is on the first floor of the building, but just around the corner. Located conveniently near Metro Kupalovskaya, ibid. is situated near a number of sights of Minsk, starting with the character "zero kilometer" tank winner, until the whole complex of buildings and monuments with the Church of the Holy Spirit in the heart. Close and Trinity suburb island of Sorrow. All within walking distance. Souvenirs I bought it was in Bangkok.

  • Long live our Soviet past! So dream shop looked like 30 years ago. Everything is there! Two-digit prices in rubles. Classic ladies-sellers in the form. Gorgeous robes, old-fashioned knitwear, rolls of tissue, glass showcases with different snack machines and queues at cashier.
