Shopping Walk, Moscow

Anyone who loves to shop and hunt for bargains is in for a superb time in the Russian capital. Looking for the latest stylish looks or an exquisite piece of jewelry? Then head to Tverskaya Street, the city's most expensive shopping avenue. As well as a generous smattering of high street stores such as Zara and Benetton, there are also expensive jewelers and a clutch of luxury boutiques. Busy at most times of the day, this wide central avenue transforms into the hub of Moscow's nightlife after dark. Tverskoy District is also home to the city's biggest and oldest shopping malls, abbreviated as GUM and TsUM. GUM faces the Kremlin and attracts crowds of bargain hunters because prices are lower here than in many other parts of Moscow. The large department store is organized into three open arcades. TsUM is a little more upmarket and while it also offers discounted goods from time to time, is home to top international brands. They include Gucci, Prada, DKNY, Calvin Klein and Guess. Come here for clothes, cosmetics, accessories, perfumes and much more. For those who are a little more conscious of their budget, there is the three-story Okhotny Ryad mall, which is partially underground and is filled with stores selling budget-friendly items.
