The Worker and Collective Farm Woman, Moscow

4.7
#63 of 1,336 in Things to do in Moscow
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.

  • Impressive statue made by Vera Mukhina. It has a great story too, from the first time it was exhibited at the 1937 Paris Expo, on top of the Soviet pavilion, in front of the Nazi Germany's one. Now it stands on a replica of the pavilion, at VDNKh. The surroundings need refurbishing, that's the only flaw.

  • Magnificent example of USSR architecture
  • Worth a visit, typical Soviet.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
