All-Russia Exhibition Center in Moscow

The All-Russia Exhibition Center, situated in Moscow, is host to various exhibitions, conferences, fairs, art festivals, music festivals and other notable events. Officially known as the Vserossiyskiy Vystavochny Centre (VVC), the exhibition center was originally established in 1935 and, after a series of set-backs, welcomed the public in August 1939 with different pavilions representing different regions of Russia as well as some of Russia’s neighboring countries, and an imposing statue of Joseph Stalin dominating the Central Pavilion.

During the Soviet era, the All-Russian Exhibition Center hosted over 300 national and international exhibitions, as well as numerous seminars and conferences, which attracted more than 11 million visitors each year, including many from outside Russian borders. An eye-catching feature of the exhibition site during this time was the 25 meter tall statue known as “Worker and Kolkhoz Woman” by artist Valentina Mukhina. The statue, featuring a man and woman, each with one arm stretched skywards and jointly clutching the famous hammer and sickle, unfortunately fell into disrepair and was later disassembled.

The All-Russia Exhibition Center Museum offers visitors absorbing insight into the history of the center, the history of the exhibition business in Russia and plans for the center’s future, as well as the resources that are necessary to keep a site of this magnitude running smoothly. The museum features superb pictures by renowned Russian artists and photographers depicting day and night scenes of the exhibition center. A miniature of Valentina Mukhina’s statue is a highlight of the museum.

The attraction park at the All-Russia Exhibition Center is a popular entertainment venue for Muscovites and visitors to Russia’s capital city. Visitors can enjoy Europe’s highest Panoramic Ring, the Master’s City, Paint-Ball Club, City of Discoveries and the Maugli Game Club. Those who are looking for a quieter experience will appreciate the beautiful gardens, sparkling fountains and park art created by top Russian landscape architects. Fisherman’s Village holds out to fishermen the prospect of catching a plump sturgeon, carp or trout all year round. Recreation cottages and a 20-person Finnish sauna are additional features of Fisherman’s Village.

Tourists who travel to Moscow, the capital city of Russia, will find that a visit to the fascinating All-Russia Exhibition Center will be an enjoyable and memorable experience.
