VDNKh (which stands for Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy) is a vast park originally built in the 1930s to celebrate the achievements of the Soviet Republics. Inside are numerous exhibition halls (termed pavilions) that house both permanent and temporary exhibits. It’s a nice place to wander about with some stunning fountains, lots of soviet-era architecture and statues, as well as an amusement park with rollercoasters, go-karts and other theme-park rides. VDNKh is also a great place to come in winter. Not only because there are plenty of indoor exhibitions to keep you entertained but because it also makes space for the world’s biggest ice-rink.
