  • It is amazing how could a building with such a history and such location averaged pobrjakushek market for tourists. Upset by the shortsightedness of the authors of this "project". Well, even if the number of "lavochnost'", it does not as such filing. The impression of a dreary market.

  • Is not a recent shopping centre, is the atmosphere of the old retro arcade. No words because there are many shops in the show window and feel a little cumbersome.

  • Of course, the store itself, rather reminiscent of the echo of the Soviet past. Despite the fact that there is already a lot of tenants who had anything to do with the culture and atmosphere no longer associate. Yes, the range is quite large, especially with regard to tableware, kitchen accessories, gift items and leather goods (if someone still remembers this word) and the sellers-mature ladies, old hardening. And yet, I would recommend administration of the shop more carefully select their tenants (or better help them so). Namely, the question of the cafe on the second floor of the Garden line ("DODO + 03.01.2017 visited the 17-30) ... Café become Soviet era: assortment, service, compliance with sanitary norms. The seller, without care or uniforms, puts on pastries storefront without gloves, then simply licks fingers on everyone's eyes. Metal instruments interspersed with disposable. Lack of coffee saucers. Sugar to coffee/tea surcharge (per bag-2 rubles). And of course, payable only accept cash. In General, "scoop" in the terrible manifestation! From recent discoveries: superb music room in "Gallery of Haute Couture".
