Wow, so many hidden away places! I must have walked through the Okhotney Ryad metro station at least ten times and not once did I realise there was a shopping centre inside the metro! The entire shopping centre is underground. They have a dome shaped roof above the ground but I don't think I ever noticed it either...
What a great shopping centre. It has all the name brand shops. I found a favourite of mine, "The Body Shop." Of course, I couldn't walk past and not go in and of course I ended up buying a few of their products. As I had woken up with the starts of a cold and wasn't feeling that well, I did not explore the entire shopping centre which I believe has an amazing food court. This definitely calls for a another visit.
I did visit one of the coffee shops and has the most amazing wild berries tea and it goes without saying that you cannot really have tea without something sweet to accompany it, so I ordered pancakes filled with pureed apple and caramel sauce drizzled all over. More than yummy!!
