At All-Russian Exhibition Center, see what was intended to be a celebration of Soviet achievement and grounds of the World Fair. This permanent expo was established in 1935 and was supposed to be built for the 1937 fair, but was not completed until 1939. The sprawling pavilions created on the grounds represent various cities and Soviet states, including Ukraine, Armenia, and Belarus. Today, the site houses about 400 buildings and is home to festivals, fairs, concerts, and other cultural events. While here, you can stroll its expansive walkways and stop to admire fountains.

  • The ice skating is phenomenal in winter. Huge area and thousands of people create a magical atmosphere.  more »
  • Was the SOVIET UNION and was an exhibition. Now it is just squalor. If you are recovering so close everything or cover those pavilions, which mutilated over the past 30 years to ugliness. Remember childhood, visiting with her parents and come in wild horror ... Had the truth at a skating rink. Yes and running expensive entertainment for a simple Russian with family, especially not from Moscow. Bravo batka! Pavilion of Belarus in 1975 year-sparkles. To be able to!

  • Exhibition of national economy achievements (vdnh) was the favourite place of walks in 1972-73. In the 90 's went shopping. Now comes the restoration of the former greatness of VDNKH: repaired pavilions, lawns are restored. Will that show.

  • Great place to walk around! The architecture is quite amazing. Because this place celebrates the many cultures that once made up the USSR, each building carries it's own unique style. There are many things to see here. Lots of paid museums and amusements. But just walking around is nice to. The fountain is beautiful and a must see during warmer months!
  • One of my favourite in Moscow. The special feature of this park - there are a lot of, A LOT OF, exhibitions. From dancing robots to wine and planes. Also, you can find there the famous fountain "The nation's friendship". BUT for this-year-visitors, nowadays there are the huge repair. You still can enjoy long roads on bikes, still can visit exhibitions and see the fountain.
  • There's always something interesting going on here, plus, its large territory is really good for walking and romantic dates. It's just that some buildings seriously need maintenance, and it would be great to have some sort of transport, like golf carts.
  • It was almost whole in the recconstruction, but during summer after reconstruction and with working fountains, it can be really nice.
  • Massive place. Really beautiful soviet architecture. For 2017 - under restoration.
