946 Reviews

GUM is an abbreviation meaning “Main Universal Store”, from the Russian “Глáвный универсáльный магазѝн”. It is the name of a private shopping mall located in central Moscow, just opposite Red Square. The building is a trapezoidal shape, with a steel framework and a glass roof. This made it quite unique at the time of construction, in the 1890s. From 1890 to the

1920s, the Red Square GUM was known as the Upper Trading Rows and served as a State Department Store. It was built to replace the previous trading rows, which were destroyed during the 1812 Fire of Moscow. However, GUM hasn’t always served as a shopping destination.

In 1928, Joseph Stalin converted it into office spaces, and it only reopened as a department store in 1953. It then became one of the only stores in the former Soviet Union not to suffer from consumer goods shortage, often resulting in long shopper queues spilling into Red Square.

Red Square and City Ultimate Tour with a Professional Local Guide

Red Square and City Ultimate Tour with a Professional Local Guide

star-5

We will meet you in the hotel and proceed to the Red Square — one of the most iconic Russian sights, filled with history and magnificent beauty. We will see traditional Russian churches with their onion domes and walk inside some of them to see how unique is their architecture, how people pray (some of these churches are still in use!) We will walk through a great glass gallery of a ~130 years old shopping mall GUM and see the famous tomb of the first Russian communist leader — Lenin. And of course — the Saint Basil's cathedral. One of the strangest stories here is about Ivan the Terrible blinding the architects of the cathedral, so they can't repeat the stunning beauty of the masterpiece! We'll walk through a modern wonder of Zaryadie park, see the walls of Kremlin and, optionally, stop for a traditional Russian lunch in one of our favourite Moscow places. We'll have an opportunity to see the change of guards and the Eternal Flame — a memorial to the victims of WWII. And more:)

Wow! Three days, that's not nothing, I mean, it's more like something! We will be able to cover a lot. How about the first day we dedicate to the city centre — all the main places, "must-sees" so called. So you can finally bring it down from your shoulders and settle your mind — you are in Moscow, from now on it will become only more interesting. The second day, I think, we should dedicate to the historical center's off-the-beaten-track places: hidden churches, mansions, maybe a couple of the most interesting museums — promise, no boring ones, only the ones I would go to myself. And the third day, finally, everyone is already pleasantly tired a bit, so we will use more of the public transport and go see what's there on the outskirts of the city. And there it's more of a Soviet vibe, so all the greatest Soviet monuments we leave for the final day. This whole tour can be customised up to your wishes, so you are very welcome to express your ideas on what you'd like to see in Moscow:)
