Kalinka-Stockmann Mall

Kalinka-Stockmann Mall

Looking on my photo-archives, I have decided to show this view from my car on the building of fancy shopping mall in downtown of Moscow city, called Kalinka-Stockmann. I think, that this is good idea to present me as a guide, driver and photographer in Moscow who want to show you something interesting from Russia. This picture I took from my old Russian car LADA 21099 about 1.5 year ago, in summer 2005, it was warm and sunny day (lovely weather, if compare with current weather and season :-)).

"Kalinka-Stockmann" is the chain of markets in Moscow, where the prices are quite expensive (I can say the most expensive grocery stores in Moscow). But in this shop you can find everything from sleepers to olives, wide range of goods which foreigners used to buy on West, but can not be found in another shopping malls; also they have a wide choice of delicacies for the most demanding gourmets. On the red banners is written: "Rasprodazha", which means "Sale" on English, of course, they can do this trick in this overpriced shop.

Here is also very interesting detail - double parking in Moscow is very common. While I was waiting here my client, I had not any choice to park normally nearby sidewalk. This shopping mall is located on the Garden Ring around downtown of Moscow city and even the road has 6 lines each way, usually here is very bad traffic and now you know why.. :-). Policemen come from time to time asking drivers to move the cars at least from the second line, but in 30-60 min will be the same situation..

I would just like to add my own testimonial to the great service that Arthur provides.

The schedule for my business trip was challenging - many meetings in only two full days with the additional request of seeing as much of the key sights of Moscow as time would allow.

Having not been to Moscow or Russia before, it would have been difficult and stressful to even find my way around.

Not only did Arthur get me to all my meetings on time (despite the infamous Moscow traffic), he also helped me see some of the best of Moscow and even made a CD of the photos he took to help me remember the trip.

Thanks Arthur, great job!
