Hg2 : The Hedonist


TsUM – the former Soviet department store now turned giant marketplace – is the place visitors are always told to go for souvenirs. There is a truly vast selection on the top floor of the store, which includes everything from stuffed wolves to traditional Kazakh costumes to Russian matryoshka dolls to gold-plated snow leopard statuettes, with representations of President Nazarbayev also featuring heavily. However, there are plenty of lovely things to be had besides the more out there items and the whole experience is great fun. At time of writing, TsUM was undergoing extensive ground floor renovations with plans to introduce a boutique fashion area featuring brands like Zara and Mango.
