Old meets new in Moscow mall

A shopping mall in the heart of Moscow which has undergone nearly as many changes as the country's politics is celebrating the 120th anniversary of its opening.

Since opening in 1893, Moscow's shopping mall GUM - or State Universal Store - has mirrored many of the changes in Russia's politics and history.

As it celebrates its 120th anniversary, the mall now sells some of the world's most deluxe brands alongside retro style Soviet products in old-fashioned shops.
