Christmas Decorations in GUM

Christmas Decorations in GUM

Here is the picture I took with my client Steve Killian during the tour around the Red Square couple weeks before the New 2007 year inside of the famous shopping mall called from the Soviet times as GUM. This name is the short for a Gosudarstvenny Universalny Magazin (Eng: State Department Store). Opened in 1893 this building was called Upper Trade Rows and only in middle of 20th century they added a roof from glass between the 3 lines (rows) inside this huge shopping mall. It was the biggest store in Russia before the Soviet revolution 1917, and one of well-known and famous shops during all its history due its location and beautiful architectural style.

I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Arthur, from our original enquiry via email Arthur gave us a full itinery of suggested sites to visit which could be tailored to suit our needs it included very useful tips on what to expect on our visit. Only a nominal deposit was required with full payment made on completion of the tour. Deposit for the tour was easily made via Paypal and Arthur promptly provided a receipt. Arthur arrived on time as expected in a vehicle of very high standard, Arthur's English was near perfect and nothing was too much trouble for him. He is a first class photographer and provided us with a comprehensive lasting memory of our visit. Thanks Arthur from Debi, John, Mark & Katie X
