Welcome back to the USSR - explore the achievements of Soviet Empire!


A picture by the Fountain of People's Friendship (the one with guilded girls) on VDNH was a MUST for all Soviet people visiting Moscow. You can repeat this experience!

Built in 1939 VVC (former VDNH) has became the largest in the USSR exhibition to display the country's economy achievements. Now it's a huge open air museum and a beautiful park where you see a lot of significant landmarks within one place - great samples of highly decorated Stalin Emrire style architecture, impressive fountains, Yuriy Gagarin space ship Vostok, Buran shuttle, Worker and Kolkhoz Woman Statue and many more.

Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics (Space Museum) is located near by. You never forget this place. Just look at photos I prepared for you to get the idea of what is inside and around.

NOTE: Space Museum is open all other days except Monday.

If you want professional photo session during this tour (170$ extra), please, pm me to adjust the price. All photos accompaning my tours I took myself. You get the same quality.

Itinerary

We meet at your hotel lobby, then go by metro to VVC park. Moscow metro is a landmark, so we see some beautiful stations. We explore the Space Valley around the Museum of Cosmonautics, then go inside the museum. After the museum we go to all important highlights of VVC park. After this I take you back to the hotel by metro.

If you wish instead of returning back to the hotel after the tour you can stay longer in VVC park or visit Oceanarium on its territory. I show you where it is.
