GUM Moscow History

GUM comes under the project called the Upper Trading Rows that opened on December 2nd, 1893. This passage became the largest in Europe at that time. It covered shopping streets that were inspired from the covered bazaars of the Arab countries. The oldest one out of the lot, Passage du Caire, was built in 1799. Soon, these covered shopping streets converted into stores. The new rows became the most fashionable and technologically advanced European department store in Russian style.

With times, GUM has evolved into an ideal shopping city of Moscow. The place has survived the many blunders and losses that came its way for almost 120 years and has emerged victorious. GUM has become more than just a store from where one can buy everything. This shopping block has plenty of options ranging pharmacy, banks, flower shops, and beyond.

    • Trip to Moscow

      Since last 10 years it’s very first time that I availed customized travel services from an Indian tour operator. And my experience is very good. They fulfilled each commitment. And best part was that SUMIT was always in communication mode, instead of time difference. Their support while my flight was cancelled by airline, appreciable. I wish Sumit & Shyne all the best & thanks a lot. Each moment & destination was awesome.Russia is a fantastic destination/depends upon your taste. I gained a lifetime memory with my family.
