The Worker and Collective Farm Woman, Moscow
(4.4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Featuring ubiquitous Soviet imagery, The Worker and Collective Farm Woman represents a well-preserved example of socialist realism. Originally designed for the Soviet pavilion at the 1937 Paris World's Fair, the statue was later relocated here. Stop by the sculpture, rising to a height of more than 25 m (82 ft), and get a glimpse of the symbolism that once featured so prominently in cities around the country. The stainless steel monument depicts a man and woman clutching their famous tools, representing the laborers and collective farm workers of the USSR, respectively. Note that the figures are arranged so that their equipment forms the classic hammer-and-sickle symbol of the Communist Soviet government. Make The Worker and Collective Farm Woman a part of your Moscow vacation plans using our Moscow trip itinerary planner.

  • Museum and exhibition complex "worker and kolkhoz woman" surprisingly pleasant place that if there is any additional exposures is not quite populous. On the 1 floor of archival documents from the history of creation of the monument "worker and kolkhoz woman", a gallery of photos of the family of Vera Mukhina and its adherents participating in creating a sculpture. Getting acquainted with the documents you understand power and labor feat of the Soviet citizen. On Saturday excursion, including on an observation deck. Visit free entrance 200 rubles. Opposite the museum complex is another landmark of the monorail, take a ride, take in the Ostankino television tower and enjoy this type of transport.

  • The strength happens to be variable, continuous and regular, and it flows from the ether, or pretends that flows from natugoj from the usual outlets, and some places glisten from applications thousands of hands, pretending to be the admirers and the used up steps, while others are covered by lichens, and some not-a thick layer of bird guano. Might and power, hidden in the mighty mount could be quiet mice on the mountain, and predatory feathery on the joy? Argue that the VDNKh-and the famous muhinskij monument-place light forces.

  • The famous monument, created by the sculptor Vera Mukhina, Faith is in front of the northern entrance to VDNKH. The sculpture is very impressive, without her pedestal height reaches twenty-five meters. In the impressive pedestal is located Museum and exhibition complex, where you can get acquainted with the history of the capital.
