Fountain inside the GUM

Fountain inside the GUM

GUM (State Department Store) was built on the Red Square in 1893 and 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. It has the nice fountain in center of the building to rest during shopping.

Every memorable act in the history of the world is a triumph of enthusiasm. Nothing great was ever achieved without it because it gives any challenge or any occupation, no matter how frightening or difficult, a new meaning. Without enthusiasm you are doomed to a life of mediocrity but with it yu can accomplish miracles." (Og Mandino author and speaker)
This is in dedication to Arthur who became my friend. He looked after me and took care of me with great care and tenderness. Who would have thought that as a famale traveling alone and landing in Moscow could trust the hands of a stranger to take her to her hotel. That strange man ended up being one of the best experiences of my trip. Besides being my driver, tour guide, educator, interpreter, photographer and mediator, he was kind and one of the most humble human beings I have ever come across. His passion for his work beamed through with his enthusiasm for his country as well as having the love for people and life. The tears we left behind were a symbol that there are such good people on this earth. Thank you so much for making my trip such a wonderful experience!
