Why locals love it

This big department store used to be the biggest shopping mall in USSR where one could buy goods for children.
In 2006-2015 it was reconstructed and now the vast part of it is a Hamleys store.
On the 5th floor, there is a big foodcourt where you can find budget meals of all kinds.

Why you should visit it

Apart from an opportunity to go back to you childhood years and to have a budget meal, on there is a nice observation desk on the top floor.
From there, you can see Kremlin, city centre, and even Moscow State University.

Special tip

To find the observation desk, you should go to the 6th floor, pass by Mcdonalds and climb the stairs behind the door
