The Store looks like a big shopping mall for kids with a lot of shops, and you are probably wondering what an adult can do there, right? Alright, let me give you a hint! Firstly, if you are travelling with children, they will be excited to see the statues of Iron Man, Hulk, all My Little Pony ponies, Lego girls and much more! Secondly, this place has many activities for the younger generation: a museum with life-sized dinosaurs that explains the life of these magnificent extinct animals, InnoPark - a center of scientific discoveries for kids and many more! The interior of the store is made of light marble, while on the ceiling in the main hall, you can observe a glass Pano with the heroes of Russian folk tales.

What to do there besides shopping? 

Central Kids Store in Moscow attracts a lot of people every day because of its ice cream. I’m not kidding! Ice creams with many flavours, such as chocolate, strawberry, blueberry, vanilla, caramel must be found and immediately eaten! The quality is very high because the visitors are mainly children, and you know that they are just the fond of this dessert! After eating the ice cream, go straight to the 6th floor and find the Observation Deck sign. The price is 50 roubles (less than $1) and the view is breath-taking! From the Observation Deck, you can see the Kremlin, St. Basil's Cathedral, Moscow State University and many narrow streets, winding and cozy. It’s a very romantic and nice place to visit in the evening. The sun reflects on the roofs of the buildings and creates many different colors on them: golden shades of the sunset are mixed with pink and blue.

Central Kids Store at Lubyanka metro station is a perfect place for those who think that walking along the streets is not enough. Watching Moscow from a bird’s eye perspective is a great experience as well. A sweet tooth can enjoy a delicious ice cream and a cup of coffee, and young guests of this paradise for children can find out what their Russian peers are fond of.
