GUM department store

Local nameГосударственный универсальный магазин (ГУМ)
LocationKitay-gorod, Moskva, Russia

GUM is the main department store in many cities of the former Soviet Union, known as State Department Store during the Soviet era. Similarly named stores operated in some Soviet republics and in post-Soviet states.

The most famous GUM is the large store facing Red Square in the Kitai-gorod area – itself traditionally a mall of Moscow. Originally, and today again, the building functions as a shopping mall. During most of the Soviet period it was essentially a department store as there was one vendor: the Soviet State. Before the 1920s the location was known as the Upper Trading Rows.

As of 2021, GUM carries over 100 different brands, and has cafes and restaurants inside the mall.
