Very comfortable place for shopping. Don't want to look for a free parking place? No problem, they have wallet parking (150RUR per hour). Need to refresh a wardrobe? Three floors of different brands. Are you hungry? Cafes and restaurants are for your pleasure. Are you tired? You can have a rest at the GUM's cinema. Moreover, on the 1st floor... More

The architecture is stunning, but the shops are very upmarket (a bit like a Russian Covent Garden). Well worth a wander through though, when you're in Red Square.

The Store is right next to the Kremilm and hosts some very expensive shops, but I believe several brands have moved out and have been replaced as the economy is currently not doing very well.

The business side of Red Square is a huge and luxury shopping center in front of Kremlin palace. When I was there, a classic car show was held in the main hall. It was very interesting.

Well worth a visit, but you won't find any bargains here as it is very upmarket and expensive. The architecture of the building is beautiful and the domed roof is spectacular.

It's a huge mall in the red square. You can find anything you want plus there are decent restaurants and cafes. Would definitely recommend.

We visited during Christmas and the decorations were stunning - apart from that, it is a run of the mill shopping centre, no different from any large shopping centre in the UK.

If you go during the christmass season, the whole mall is decorated with every imaginable decoration for the holiday. If high end shopping is your desire, they have all the designer clothing and more. On the first floor they have a caviar bar and a extensive grocery store that runs almost the length of the mall upstairs check out the... More

This shopping centre is in a beautiful building, its worth going in just to have a look. However once inside there are the same shops as anywhere in the world and it was so crowded when we were there.
