The Fountain in GUM

3, Red Square

"By the fountain in GUM," – this phrase is familiar to most of the Moscow residents. It bears a relation to one of the most iconic and famous sights of Moscow – the fountain in GUM shopping centre. History of the famous fountain began in 1893 with the construction of a new building of the Upper Trading Rows that later came into possession of GUM.

In modern times the fountain was improved by modifying hydraulic system. The base of the octagonal basin was made of marble and the upper structure was recast in bronze for better preservation. The fountain in GUM operates all year round, has a unique design, and stands for one of the most favourite places of the capital’s residents.
