Do you know the place near Red Square, where you can eat the most delicious ice cream, buy anything you want and see a magnificent architectural building that is more than 120 years?
It’s GUM - shopping city in a heart of Moscow centre.
In GUM you can find:
Interior design looks like classic Soviet grocery shop with lots of gastronomic products for any consumer.
About 800 000 kg looks completely weightless.
The GUM’s fountain ️
A very famous place for Moscow citizens to meet.
A classic self-service line which offers Russian and European cuisine.
During New Year holidays GUM turns into a beautiful fairytale with many thematic constructions and decorations. Since 2006 GUM-Skating rink is opened every year on Red Square. Now it is the most famous and the brightest ice rink of Moscow.
Historical toilet 200 rubles - that is the price for the entrance to the Historical toilet of GUM. It is located in the basement between the second and third lines, near the exit to Nikolskaya. For this money, you can appreciate the pre-revolutionary interior of the toilet - with marble trimming, cotton towels and gold-plated holders for toilet paper. In the ladies' room there is also a shower - you can use it for a thousand rubles (towel, slippers, bathrobe, hairdryer and shampoo included in the price).
Those who want to save money need to go up to the third floor - the entrance to the toilet is at the opposite end of the building and costs 50 rubles.
Even if you have only one day in Moscow, especially in winter, you should visit GUM, to see a part of Russian history.
