GUM, Moscow

#1 of 834 in Shopping in Russia
Must see · Department Store · Shopping
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.

  • Next to the red square. Well decorated streets inside the mall. Its really took my attraction. Street foods are delicious. I bought ice cream for 100 rubles . Wow. all the shops are well arranged to get customer attraction. Can bargain too. Well service by all the sellers. Prices are reasonable.
  • Wonderful place to shop for designer labels. Also good for a coffee break or lunch. Don’t go to Moscow and miss this world famous department store. Although these days it is more like a shopping mall. Highly recommended.
  • What nostalgia I have now, visiting it again after 20+ years! The decorations of premises inside and out are beautiful. Decorations are done for major holidays and events and they're creative. You get a feeling of grandeur and opulence right away. Try to visit at night, because everything is lit up... and it's a spectacle! The ice-cream cones served by The Fountain are a major throwback to USSR days, when QC standards were extremely high, and only natural ingredients were used. So, if you've never had super ice-cream, this is the place to try it. Don't miss the restored bathrooms (not free entry, but worth it). The stairwell is literally lined with red carpet. 😁
  • I like how they decorate their mall.. so beautiful. The Ice cream is good. And I love a food on the 3rd floor.. many food , many choices and not expensive. nice seat to sit and eating.
  • Nice place to visit. The famous ice-cream available in many entrance. Don't need queue up just only at the main one and actually the taste is so so. Toilets are difficult to find.
