If you have the cash to spend on Fendi or Gucci, this is the place for you. This shopping complex is adjacent to the Red Square. You can have lunch in the shopping centre, then browse all the expensive bags and shoes.

It is not really a store but a delightful shopping "arcade", the architecture is delightful and it is fun to stroll around remembering that once this was the sole territory of the Soviet elite. Some great cafe's which are actually well priced.

It's just a mall,like the pretty ones you find in Europe, with the same shops, at the same price. Nothing typically Russian, except the cafeteria on the top floor, cheap,charmless, with lousy food. Not worth a detour.

GUM is full of sights, sounds, stores - it was colorful, noisy, and had a great assortment of stores to shop in. Although we didn't shop/purchase anything it was entertainment just walking though it.

The building is huge, little confusing wandering around. But it is just beautiful inside and outside. Very expensive, but beautifully set out.

Yes, in the third aisle on ground level there is a large delicatessen. The black sturgeon caviar is hugely expensive but the red salmon caviar is more reasonably priced. The Russian for caviar is ‘Ikra’.
