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.

  • This is one huge store, although now is made up of all different shops. It is set over three levels, and you can buy just about anything there. Some very expensive designer shops as well as others. Lo...  more »
  • It is the largest department store in Russia, in front of Red Square. It's a national department store, but it's very big. And even though ice cream is famous, it's just ice cream that you can buy in this department store.

  • 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.
  • This is the Mall very everything happens live events, shows, new movies, product launch, discounts, Entertainment etc.. man you name them you cannot stop especially the food here is just amazing multiple stores for options which you have never dreamt of if you are at the Kremlin square please be sure to visit here you will truly love it...
  • Best shopping mall I have seen. A unique upmarket shopping mall with character. You will not find anything similar. Good and wide selection of shops.
  • Spectacular but expensive place. You'll find everything here: top brands, beautiful store fronts, exclusive cafes, and legendary ice-cream. This department store is conveniently situated between the subway exit and the Red square, so you can take a stroll through on your way to or from the Kremlin sightseeing. Be prepared to dish out quite more than the average sums of money if you decide to shop here, as the place caters to tourists and wealthy locals. One of the few affordable things is the ice-cream (~$1.5 USD), which has a number of flavours and a long standing history of being offered at GUM.
