Full description
The guide will meet you at the hotel, from where, depending on the location of the hotel, you will go by foot, by public transport, or by taxi to the main entrance of VDNKh. From here, your fascinating journey through the Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy will begin. Along the picturesque Central Avenue, you will go towards the Central Pavilion No. 1, which greets guests every day with its snow-white colonnade. The guide will tell you about the architecture of this building, and what difficulties Soviet architects faced during its construction. To the right side of the pavilion, you will get acquainted with one of the main attractions of the exhibition complex - the magnificent Friendship of the Peoples Fountain. Further, you will proceed to the pavilions 'Armenia', 'Karelia', and 'Culture', each of which has its own unique architectural features. The next stop on your itinerary will be the monumental fountain 'The Stone Flower', the work of the eminent architect Konstantin Topuridze. The tour will end at the Industry Square, where you will admire the achievements of Soviet cosmonautics, in particular, the Vostok spacecraft - a copy of the spacecraft on which Yuri Gagarin circled the Earth in 108 minutes. At the end of the tour, the guide will accompany you to the VDNKh metro station.

Guai Valentina was very helpful and lively. We walked by subway to VDNKh station, where we began visiting the pavilions and the entire park. Too bad some museum pavilions are closed on Mondays (the day of my tour). The guide had excellent Portuguese and could explain many architectural details that enriched the knowledge of the tour. It took 30 min to get to the 'park', we walked for about 2 hours. Recommended for youth and adults, children and the elderly may have difficulty.
