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.

  • 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.
