About the tour

The biggest Soviet theme park in Moscow is a staple sightseeing of the Russian capital. VDNKH stands for the Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy and it was opened as an agriculture exhibition in Moscow in 1939. VDNKH covers 277 hectares in the Northeast of Moscow- this is a fabulous enormous territory with pavilions, fountains, ponds, recreation zones, cafés, and restaurants. We will see the triumphant Central Pavilion, decorated with reliefs narrating the history of the Soviet Union, the Friendship of the PeoplesFountain with sculptures of 16 young women dressed in the national costumes of the Soviet republics, and more!


Meet your local guide

Anna

Anna is incredibly passionate about her job as a Moscow guide: every time she sees her guests catching their breath in a beautiful cathedral or smiling with a joy in the Red Square, she feels she's doing something right! As a true local, she knows that Moscow is an ever-changing metropolis and strives to communicate the diversity and contrasting characteristics of her native city - modern and ancient Moscow - at the same time. Anna loves showing Moscow from the perspective of a local - the striking and important history, beautiful architecture and modern lifestyle with hustle and bustle rhythm, authentic gastro-clusters and beautifully hidden lanes. We hope you can join Anna for an unforgettable tour of this wonderful city!

Anna has been guiding since Jan 2016
