GUM, Minsk

(2.8/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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!

  • Between the 2 gums to me this gum is more genuine catering to locals. The gum in red square is a stylish upmarket shopping mall for the rich. Recommended to visit to have a feel of it.  more »
  • Perhaps the best place for shopping in Minsk. There is a large supermarket where you can buy cheaper Belarusian products. On the ground floor of a very colorful mestecheko with small pivnuhami-all charge chips and beer and behind little tables by the window. Mainly, students and alkashi =)
