This evening after work I went to IKEA. Mind you, Russia has 3 IKEA stores around the city. The nearest one is 40 minutes via Metro to the north/northwest. IKEA Himki was the first IKEA to open in RU back in 2000.
Address: 1141400, Moscow region, Khimki, district No. 8, Building 1
Take the purple line Metro from city centre all the way to the end – Planernaya. Exit the station and go to your left. Across the street is where the MegaMall (megamall.ru) bus will pick you up. I didn’t realize this and stood around the metro station for about 30 minutes watching two buses drive by! Finally I tracked it back and found the stop. Trust me, it isn’t clearly marked.
IKEA is this huge home/bath/kitchen store with “Scandinavian modern style furniture and accessories”.
We needed some new stuff for the apt: sheets, glassware, bath mat, etc. I lugged home a big bag of goods! The bag, 29 rub, was the best bargain of the night!
Come visit the apt and I’ll show you what all I just got 🙂
