Vserossiyskiy Vystavochny Center (All-Russian Exhibition Center) is commonly known as VDNKh (Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy). It is located near the subway station with the same name, so it’s no surprise that locals usually call that place the same. I think this name suits it better. I come here not for buying something or settling business contacts, but to enjoy the atmosphere I won’t find in any other Russian park. There are many pavilions built in different styles and dating back to different times, so I can learn the history of Soviet and Russian architecture. And sometimes you can be lucky enough to find something interesting inside.
The wax museum works permanently, as long as the museum of Torture. The second one is really good, but I advise you to visit the first one too to compare it with Madame Tussauds. Have you ever had a 5D cinema experience? Well, VDNKh is one of the several places in Russia where you can try it. Sometimes even exhibitions may be interesting. For example, I managed to visit an ice cream and ravioli exhibition. I am not a fan of “pelmeni”, but I compensated it with consuming really large amounts of ice cream!
So, even if you have already decided to visit VVC, check the schedule, maybe you will find something attractive in the specific pavilions. And if you are tired of people, just stroll to the Botanical garden located nearby.
