view web site ›'s insider take:

For proof that Soviet nostalgia has turned into marketable irony, visit the Ministry of Gifts (Ministerstvo Podarkov). A red carpet leads to the ministerial rostrum—no, wait, it's the cash register. Choose a gift first: There are clocks made of packs of Belmorkanal cigarettes (named after the canal built by Gulag prisoners), tins of caviar, pillows embroidered with Soviet slogans, and hollowed-out copies of Marx's Das Kapital—perfect for squirreling away some cash.

Open Mondays through Fridays 10 am to 9 pm, Saturdays 11 am to 9 pm, Sundays 11 am to 8 pm.
