The sprawling pavilions created on the grounds represent various cities and Soviet states, including Ukraine, Armenia, and Belarus.

  • Visited VDNKH, well-gigantomania, huge square at the entrance to the scaffolding, according to the recollections of my mother "in Soviet times, there really could see the achievements of the national economy, and now not then." We visited the exhibition "gardens and people", there are no pointers, how to pass, however, staff in the territory was always willing to help, eventually pritopali on heat to 75 Pavilion, there are the same as we have customers in vain tried to find the entrance, as a result of errors still found. Exhibition enjoyed, but the Organization "limps" empty cafes and stalls should be something else to come up with!

  • I love to visit VDNKH, especially when from there removed the ugly markets and stalls. In the summer of 2017 go trendy reconstruction pavilnonov, fountains, paths and pavements. Many fences. The people too much. It is therefore not very handy, it's hard to relax and enjoy. I am waiting anxiously the completion next summer and will certainly go and am sure that put the highest scores!

  • VDNKH, slowly but surely, evolving from huge neuhozhennogo razvalivajushhemisja market pavilions, which she was more than twenty years, modern exhibition. The reconstruction process is. And the pleasure of visiting the exhibition now it decreases. But what a beauty here is after the repair! Now you can visit the huge Oceanarium, an interactive museum on the history of the fatherland, etc. so that you yourself here certainly take. Beautifully in the evening when the lights are lit illumination.

  • One of the most impressive parks and places of interest in Moscow. I really like the way it got renovated too.
  • VDNKH is the right name for this place. It's a habitual leisure place where you will find a lot of attractions, such as strolling around, riding bikes and skates, visiting different exhibitions and even wedding.
  • A very nice place to spend your free time at. There are two beautiful fountains and multiple exhibitions happening all the time. The park is decorated with many flowers and has many restaurants and cafes to relax at. There are many attractions available for people of all ages at the theme park located on the site.
  • Beautiful park, filled with amazing architectural mementos from the soviet era. Great for walks with family and friends, riding bikes and scooters.
  • Love this place! 🙌 Huge! Monumental! Calming 😊 Great sounds of USSR music 🎶 All the way up!
