This is a beautiful centre but expensive by European standards . When I was there the shops were empty and if you went in the staff tended to stare and make you feel uncomfortable. It seems like a centre for wealthy mistresses.

Nice place to just walk around even if you don't plan on buying anything. Nice setting and architecture, and did I mention that they have clean free restrooms?

Excellent shopping centre. Beautyfull architecture. Medium and high end brands. You can find shops with a medium price level like Zara, but also very expensive brands. It's worth to visit it, even if you don't go shopping. Nice cafe's.I love this place.

It is worth a walk around in the GUM - it is very beautiful on both he inside and out, but the shops in there are very pricey and just like at home.
