GUM The ornate Neo-Russian facade of GUM, Moscow's "State Department Store". Built between 1890 and 1893 by Alexander Pomerantsev, the building features an interesting combination of elements of Russian medieval ecclesiastical architecture and an elegant steel framework and glass. This modern 3-story arcade is the largest shop in Moscow and was built to replace the old hall of the Upper Trading Rows, which existed earlier on the same site but burnt down in 1825. The original hall contained some 1,200 separate shops and stalls and was one of Moscow's liveliest markets. Light floods in through the building's glass roof and souvenir stands, foreign stores and designer boutiques fill the arcades. I was in GUM last year. It’s a very good place for shopping! And an interesting and beautiful place for tourists!
