Photo Store-well, how do you do without the pictures of the State universal store. To visit Moscow and don't make some photos of the interiors of the Gum is to skip part of Moscow.

The acronym GUM is familiar to almost all the inhabitants of Russia, who at least once visited Moscow. More than 100 years this shopping complex is a symbol of Russian trade. Built in 1893, the year the Mall remains one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Gum history is interesting and long lasting. Yet in 18 century at this location housed the shops. When Catherine the great, it was decided to rebuild them and erected in their place shopping complex. The project was designed by the famous architect Kvarnegi. This is the architect of the project, which built the Smolny, English Palace in Peterhof, Alexander Palace, and many more. But construction was not finished, and in 1812 year stalls burned. The case took another great architect Osip Beauvais. But again, the building decayed, and disputes have impeded shopkeepers bring building back in order.

In the year 1888 was created the joint-stock company "the upper trade rows on red square in Moscow.  A contest was announced, which won the project of architect a. N. Pomerantsev. In the same year, construction work began.

Solemn opening of the complex took place in 1893, and furnish of internal premises continued until 1896 year.

After the revolution, the building was not changed. In 1923, was opened, the State Department Store (gum). In 30-ies of the building wanted to demolish and build in its place the building of the Ministry of heavy industry. But, fortunately, these plans went awry.

In 1952 year rear was reconstructed and the main shop in the country continued its work.

GUM was restored several times-in the 70 's, in the late 90 's, 2000 's.

Today the store building is leased by the Russian company Bosco di Ciliegi. And I must say that the owners of the company competently manage the property.

Photographers have long chosen GUM as a venue for photo shoots. You can often see in store wedding photographers with their wards. Fashion photographers use staircases for shooting store for fashion magazines. And of course thousands of tourists with cameras remove GUM from morning till evening. What attracts GUM for photographers. Primarily because the GUM is the ideal place for a photo with natural light. The huge glassed area provide enough light for photographers. Secondly, this is a large open space with walkways, stairways, benches and handrails-beautiful surroundings to create different stories. Well and is just beautiful, and the main thing-the company tenant retains the old interiors, repaired, and a new and quite naturally was made with taste.  So, be sure to visit the GUM-if not for shopping, then for the sake of aesthetic pleasure.
