Hardly recognized the place after 20 years of skipping visits. Finally a make-over of the old Soviet style shopping center. No empty shelves anymore, but a huge variety of products. Too many for me. On the top floor they even sell wolf skins and stuffed...More

Outside this center is a lovely square with lots of water fountains and statues. One fountain goes with the music. Inside, it is like a flea market with stalls set up instead of a traditional mall like I'm used to. The basement had technology repairs....More
