The lighting at night from red square is fun. Great place to jump into when it rains. The inside 20 years ago was blue and white. Now there is a third level and none of the blue.

Everyone has to go to GUM. No need to buy - but you have to go. It’s a shopping mall rather than a department store but it’s very swanky and very nice. In the summer a glass of wine on the terrace by Red Square...More

Fantastic shopping centre on the Red Square. It looks like museum. You can come here just to walk around or to stay for coffee and enjoy the beauty of this place. I also recommend Stolovaya 57 on the last floor, a nice russian self service...More

Even though we were there over the holidays and the mall was full we didn’t feel crowded. We had coffee and bites at one of the cafes.

A very upscale shopping center in an old building by the Red Square, unlike any other I've seen. Only top brands so very expensive, but it's worth just walking around, and going to the very nice grocery store inside. It's like the Harrods Food halls,...More

Not at all comfortable for shopping, however the building itself is one of the most beautiful in Moscow. Toilets (Victorian) is worth a visit to see the work done on it. Lots of tourists so morning visit is recommended.

The most famous shopping mall in Russia for good reason. You might not buy much there - it is overloaded with designer outlets aimed primarily at wealthy locals - but the cafes, the ice cream and the vibe are excellent. It’s easy to navigate (lines...More

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’.
