Swatch Club Holiday Event Moscow 2017

part 2: A visit to the GUM department store and a Moskva boat cruise

On Friday afternoon, at the end of our city walk across the Red Square, we entered the GUM department store.  30 minutes for power shopping in this huge and nicely decorated building!

Mission accomplished!

Afterwards, we also had time to see the Swatch store inside of the GUM department store.  Obviously, I was so excited that I forgot to take some pictures :-)  Everybody had the chance to buy the Moscow Destination special Evening Ring (SUOZ262) and the GUM department store special GUM 120 (SUOZ179).  The St. Petersburg Destination special Peter I (SUOZ263) was not for sale!

Back at the hotel, we saw some fascinating cars :-)  The Money Team Russia is a lifestyle brand inspired by box champion Floyd Mayweather...

In the evening, we left the hotel for the next surprise:  A boat trip on the Moskva river.  Once again, it took us almost one hour to get to the starting point near the Radisson Royal Hotel (it is only about 6 kilometers with the car!).  Swatch had chartered the best river cruise ship that is available in Moscow.
