This is not only a fashionable shopping and entertainment complex, it is a real art object, moreover it is about both the internal content of GUM and its external appearance. The pseudo-Russian-style building became the same symbol of Russia as the Saint Basil’s Cathedral or the Kremlin. Until 1920, it was called the Upper Trading Rows and was rebuilt after 1812, occupying a whole block in the historic center of the city. The department store is anxious about its history, so there is a lot of attention paid to the Soviet style, and the pre-revolutionary interior in some rooms has been recreated.
