Shops and shopping centers in Moscow
No matter how much time the guests of Moscow spend in it, there will always be a shortage of time. A huge city, huge distances. We need to have time to do all the planned things, think about cultural leisure. Is there really a day left for shopping? Then you need to know exactly what you want to buy and where.
One of the main values of shopping in a metropolis is finding a store in the path of your current travel route. That is why there are shopping centers near most metro stations where you can buy all the goods you need for life and recreation. Such centers are arranged in the same type - shops with clothes, shoes, accessories of mid-price brands, some electronics, some little things, a grocery supermarket, a food court, a cinema. The brands are about the same. The main difference is the size of the retail space. In the suburbs, the problem of location is less acute, so the choice of goods, for example, in "Mega Teply Stan" or "Mega Khimki", is much better.
The central streets of the city are full of expensive boutiques and department stores. It is simply impossible to list the mass of stores. You can try to name the streets along which you should stroll in search of luxury. These are Tverskaya, Stoleshnikov lane, Petrovka, Yakimanka, Malaya Bronnaya, Bolshaya Nikitskaya, New and Old Arbat.
The two most luxurious department stores in the capital, GUM and TSUM, are known to every citizen of the country, but not everyone has been to them. These are not just shops, they are objects of historical heritage. They each have their own history, closely related to the history of the state. They host cultural events, shows and exhibitions.
