Moscow is a city of contrasts, where the bohemian and the glamorous merge in an idiosyncratic fusion - do not be surprised to find a golden-domed 16th century church next to an ultra-modern glass skyscraper. Here, salty fish eggs (caviar) are washed down with bubbly champagne and worn-out commuters travel by the elaborately decorated, elegant metro - one of the city's main attractions.

Popular Shopping Streets

Popular shopping streets are Noviy Arbat and the more exclusive Kuznetskiy, but the number one shopping street is Tverskaya ulitsa. Stalin had the street restored in the 1930’s, so here, too, there is evidence of his liking for massive, grey buildings.


Those who wish to start their shopping trip at one of the shopping centres with the finest old traditions in the world should head for GUM. The building was designed in the new Russian style at the end of 19th century. During the Stalinist period, GUM was temporarily converted to offices. Today it accommodates a plethora of international luxury brands.
