We invite you to the “factory of happy people”, as Herbert Wells called the Park of Culture! We will not offer you to jump from a parachute tower, play chess or look into a beer stall, as they did here in the 30s, but we will engage in cultural and educational work, which was the main task of the Park. On the main alleys, you will learn about the past of this atmospheric place.

Chronicles and quirks of the park How did the park of culture and recreation appear and how did it change? Learning about this, along the way, you will discover a lot of interesting things. We will tell you

- About the progenitor of VDNKh - Handicraft and industrial exhibition, created for the exchange of experience between workers and collective farmers;
- About the beautiful "Girl with an Oar", exiled to the city of Lugansk, to the chagrin of Moscow lovers of nude art in art;

We will remind you of the dangers of smoking by showing a photo of Soviet posters.
