What awaits you
Exhibition through time The VDNKh complex has a bright and unusual fate: a long prehistory, the opening of the All-Union Agricultural Exhibition in 1939 and closing two years later, re-opening in 54, the dominance of stalls at the turn of the century and a revival today. You will hear not only about the past, but also learn the details of the restoration of the complex: about the changes in its appearance, the scale of the work done and the impressive achievements of the masters
To "Cosmos" and back We will walk from the main arch to the Cosmos Pavilion, examining the functional and decorative structures of the exhibition along the way. I will share interesting details about the Friendship of Peoples and Stone Flower fountains. And the famous sculptures "Worker and Kolkhoz Woman", "Tractor Driver and Kolkhoz Woman", "Conquerors of Space" will gain context and become closer and more understandable
VDNKh in detail We will see almost all the pavilions, talk about how the authors of the projects embodied the idea in architecture, and take a closer look at their details. For example, at the Russia pavilion, you will look at the fresco “The peoples of Russia built socialism” and learn how Stalin “became” a woman. And in the pavilion "Siberia" take a closer look at the curious ornament on the vases of 1954. We will also compare other bas-reliefs and paintings, see representatives of popular professions in the USSR and feel the spirit of the times.
The beginning of the excursion is at the arch of the Main Entrance. You will find out the exact meeting point immediately after booking.
