The Queen Victoria Building, fondly known as "QVB", Sydney has been called by no lesser by Pierre Cardin, to be the "the most beautiful shopping centre in the world". Built during the 1890s Depression as Sydney`s main market, it was tastefully restored in the 1980s as Sydney`s leading collection of chic stores. The stained-glass windows, Byzantine arches and plaster ornamentation makes QVB makes it much more than just a "window" shopping experience.
