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.

My wife and I as well as two of my friends just visited Moscow for 2 days. Arthur is truly a great guide to have on your trip to Moscow. He is a very friendly and fun guy that will have you remember your trip that much more. Arthur is also very generous and helpful, as on many occasions he got us through situations we would have no idea how to get through. He shows you his city which he is very proud of, and should be, I have been to 30 countries myself, and would easily choose Russia as the one with the most spectacular and beautiful things to see. May I recommend going along on the night tour of Moscow, it is a spectacular look at the sights under moonlight (and artificial light). Perhaps mention the route we took: St.Basil's, The Kremlin, Lenin's Tomb, night tour, Novodsky Convent during Day 2... Arthur doesn't let you feel out of place in Moscow, he truly is a friend in a far away place. He lets you go where you want to go. He is very informative, and just very fun to hang out with. I wish him only the best in his endeavors, and if I ever visit Russia again, we will definetly call our friend Arthur again!!! Thanks for everything man, we'll keep in touch ;)
