From the minute you walk into the complex it is jaw dropping gorgeous. Sooooo many stunning buildings and fountains and more buildings just keep on coming. Then you come to a plane! And a space shuttle! Unbelievable. Very near to the cosmanaut monument and museum. Do both on the same day for a great day out.

We went here because we had time to kill. We had a good time here. The are two beautiful fountains and beautiful flowers here. Yes it had all the building for the countries and they were interesting from the outside. Had a bike rental which was helpful because it is a big place but bring rubles, no cards accepted. Also...

VVC used to be a massive USSR Expo to appreciate USSR States' achievements across different industries. With Perestroika it became a massive market of pretty much everything (and consequently got into quite a poor condition). Nowadays there is an attempt to bring it back to its previous glory. If you are interested in Soviet type architecture and scale - this... More

Right now the park is being renovated for its big anniversary: it is beautiful outside but inside it is not ready. Please prepare to walk a lot - the area is huge! The bicycle rent is near the entrance but the don't accept cards. Rubles only. The fun places for kids are few and hard to find. We went to... More

We took the metro here after work and walked around to see all the exibit buildings. There wasn't much going on on a Wednesday night, but the weather was beautiful and a perfect night to get out of the hotel room. I would have loved to see what this looked like when it was in use. Lots to see here.

We visited the park today (2 July) and it is undergoing renovation and clean up is in a massive way. Why? Because it is a massive place. Even though there is so much work going on, we still really enjoyed ourselves. My wife is Russian and she saw it in it's heyday. I myself went there once before in 2000.... More

I expect this was interesting when all of the pavilions still had their exhibits. However, it now feels like an empty shell. Whilst all the imposing buildings and fountains are still their, their is scaffolding around most and it had the feeling of visiting aftertheparty as everything was being cleared out. The only thing functioning is lots of amusement park... More

Situated next to the space monument, this square has a building for every one of the ex-USSR countries in it, and used to be very important. Now it is home to a market, but it's incredible to see the architecture, the old statues and the stunning arches/gate which marks the entrance. The iconic soviet architecture is overwhelming, I would highly... More
