Moscow

Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy (VDNKh)

  Pr. Mira 119      (+7) 495 544 34 00     07 Nov 2018

This massive complex of pavilions buildings whose glory is fading fast, long walkways and elaborate fountains is a throwback to the Soviet era of glorification. The 90 or so pavilions built to house displays of progress of the great collectivisation of the farms, now host a variety of commercial enterprises and some are not that different to what is found in the metro passageways. The Friendship Fountain with its golden dancing maidens each dedicated to a Soviet republic sits at the heart of the complex surrounded by various pavilions in different designs which each represent a Soviet republic and its achievements. Some weekends it is crawling with families and sports enthusiasts. Space fans should look out for the soaring monument to space flight and the cosmonautics museum in its base. If someone invites you to go to VDNKh - they mean this place or the metro station opposite that goes by the same name.

A must see. We walked around in total amazement. Walking past the enormous buildings, enjoying the activities and sights.. There is so much to do. Russians enjoying themselves. You can easily spend an entire day here.
