Mega / Ikea Malls
The massive Mega shopping center is one of the first sites people arriving to Moscow via Sheremetyevo airport will see. Apparently it was very hard to build: IKEA even got into some trouble with the local government because they wanted to cover a WW2 monument with a bridge that would lead people off the motorway to the shopping center. Mega is a popular shopping destination for all purposes, it’s a hassle to reach without a car but you can find cheap goods here. Major department stores in the complex include IKEA, Stockmann and Ashan. Then there is a huge amount of other shops selling all sorts of goods, a large food court and entertainment venues including arcade game parlors and a cinema. It can be reached by free courtesy buses leaving Rechnoy Vokzal metro (green line, north).
