watch out for days/times that it's fully open, went late on a saturday evening in feb and only first pavillion was open plus the kiddies rink beside the beverage dock, they'll charge you full price regardless how much is open.

Indeed it worth the pain from falling for those who don't skate well, but you will get to see a wonderful ring. It was my dream for 2 years and then became a reality and I was satisfied! :)

I celebrated New Year on this ice skating ring, fabulous and affordable. It was opened from 5 pm to 3 am. If not possible to book online, do not worry, you can purchase the ticket on site And great fireworks at midnight.

Skating in Moscow is very traditional activity and I highly recommend to take a try. There is a lot of skating rings and VDNX is only one of them. Try also Sokolniki Park, Gorky Park, Patriarshye Prudy. It is fun!!!
