The inside of the GUM

The inside of the GUM

GUM is a short for a State Department Store. Actually built as a store in 1893 this building was called Upper Trade Rows. It was the biggest store in Russia before the revolution, and the most popular after. The inside of the GUM looks wonderful with the typical glass-roof and the many columns and ornaments.

We used Arthur for professional and business interpretation - but his abilities as a driver and as a photographer added lustre to his overall support.
Arthur really has a good command of the English language and dealt with many technical and business discussions with ease. His ability to navigate Moscow and get us to appointments on time was most impressive but it was the small things like his reliability, his obvious integrity, his good sense that made his contribution to our visit so marked. We didn't have to attempt to read Cyrillic signs for the Metro, or restaurants or streets , Arthur was completely in control of our movement through Moscow. He really was a marvel and we can't recommend him too highly. A nice man and a most professional individual.
