  • Meet your partner at the entrance of the GUM Department Store, the main setting for your treasure hunt. Present them with the first clue about a specific store inside the department store. Together, you start your quest for discovery. Each store holds a clue tied in with some element of Russian culture or history, enriching your knowledge and bonding you two as a team.
  • At the end of your hunt, as a final surprise, you can prepare a small gift symbolizing the end of the hunt - something Russian and typical from GUM like a Matryoshka doll or elegant Stolova dessert, enhancing the sense of achievement and providing a keepsake of this memorable day.
  • Wrapping up your treasure hunt date, relax over a cup of traditionally brewed Russian coffee at the upscale Bosco Café located in GUM, sharing your experiences from the hunt and reveling in the satisfaction of your combined efforts.

Preparation steps:

  • Preparation for this date requires some research. Firstly, gather information about the various stores within the GUM Department Store that have historical or cultural significance. From their core business and products, select certain interesting facts and turn them into cryptic clues. Aim for 5-7 stores to keep the duration reasonable.
  • Next, visit these stores ahead of the date. Share your plans discreetly with the store staff so that they are prepared to assist and play along during the date.
  • Finally, source for the small Russian gift that will mark the end of the hunt. Keep it hidden till the end. Arrange for the final clue to be a hint pointing to where you have concealed it.

Some tips:

  • Don't make the clues too easy or too difficult. Maintain a balance that keeps your partner interested and engaged, but not frustrated. Consider your partner's interests while selecting the stores for clues.
  • As Russian weather can often be unpredictable, even in September, make sure you both dress in layered clothing. A compact scarf or shawl could come in handy. It can be relatively cool inside the department store.
  • Even though the primary activity is indoors, the GUM Department Store features a glass roof. It's worth planning your treasure hunt on a day with good weather forecast for a delightful experience under the beautiful mix of natural and artificial lighting.
