VDNKh – 1 км

The All-Russian Exhibition Center (better known by its old name of VDNKh) is occasionally referred to as “Soviet Disneyland”. Now a decaying relic of the Soviet Union, the VDNKh grounds served as a monument to the glory of the USSR and an answer the the West’s World Fairs. In the area you can see the most majestic examples of Soviet architecture. Today VDNKh (pronounced V-D-N-Hah) is a favorite spot for Muscovites and tourists to stroll around on a nice day.

VDNKh’s Pavilions – The sprawling complex of the All-Russian Exhibition Center is dotted with many pavilions dedicated to the various republics of the Soviet Union and their economic achievements. Today the pavilions no longer serve as exhibition halls, but in fact are filled with small shops. The House of the Soviet People (pictured above) is filled with clothing stores, electronics, and cafes. Different pavilions have different specialties which are noted by signs above the entrance.

Friendship of the Nations Fountain – Located directly behind the main pavilion, the Friendship of the Nations fountain was built to glorify the Soviet people. All the statues in the center are covered with gold which creates a beautiful reflection in the sun. In the warmer months children and adults alike can be seen splashing around in the fountain.

VDNKh’s Amusement Park – On a nice day it’s worth heading over to All-Russian Exhibition Center’s small collection of theme park rides. There are two small roller coasters, a merry-go-round, and best of all, a Ferris wheel. Take a 10 minute ride (250 rubles for a closed car and 300 rubles for an open car) around the Ferris wheel and get a great view of the Moscow skyline.

Ostankino – 2 км

Erected in 1967, Moscow’s Ostankino TV and BC Tower is the second tallest free-standing building in the world. It has a structural weight of over 55,000 tons.

Standing 1,771 feet (540 metres) tall, the Ostankino Tower is something of an architectural surprise in a city that is not known for its skyscrapers. It takes just 58 seconds for visitors to reach the Tower’s observation deck. Located at a height of 1,105 feet (337 metres) from the ground, this observatory presents an entirely new perspective of Moscow. Just below the observation deck are the three dining rooms of The Seventh Heaven, a restaurant serving up delicious European cuisine as well as traditional Russian dishes.

More than a tourist attraction, the Ostankino TV & BC Tower transmits the signals of 11 television stations, 12 radio-broadcasting stations and 17 satellite TV programmes distributed through the wireless telecommunication network.

The Ostankino Estate – 2 км

The Ostankino Estate is an architectural ensemble of the XVII-XVIII centuries that used to be the out-of-town residence of Counts Sheremetevi. Apart from the Trinity church, the residence territory’s oldest building which was built in the 1680s, several other buildings have also persisted, such as the main building of the palace-theater, the kitchen pavilion (this building was restored with the use of the old technical drawings in the late 80s of the XX century), and the so called “Entertainment park” which adjoins the estate from the north. Fortunately, the planning of the park has been very well maintained and even today it is the same as it used to be in the last decade of the XVIII century.

Nowadays the Ostankino museum-estate, which received its first visitors on 1 May 1919, is the heart of the architectural and park ensemble.

The palace-theater of the Ostankino estate had been designed by F. Kamporezi and V. Brenna, and then it was built by Russian architects P. Argunov, A. Mironov and G. Dikushin in the period between 1792 and 1799.

Today this palace is the world’s only monument of architecture that is an entirely wooden construction that has retained numerous authentic interiors and theatrical mechanisms of the end of the XVIII century within its walls. The great-halls of the theater foyer, the make-up rooms for serf actors, the branch of theatrical machinery and the furnace rooms of the palace-theater had never been exposed to a large-scale restoration until recently.
