All-Russian Exhibition Centre from the roof of the central pavilion

The weather was fantastic on that day and we decided to reach the top of a very interesting building, which is the central pavilion of the All-Russian Exhibition Centre (VVC) in Moscow. The building was design in Stalin's Empire style and has attic labyrinthines, spiral staircases, lots of dark places and nooks. We will never forget what we felt when we had finally reached the top of the pavilion and saw the sunlight. On the lower part of the roof, there are beautiful sculptures in the corners and many old things scattered around since the breakup of the Soviet Union, such as the yellow letters "U", "S", "S", "R". From that point we could observe wonderful views and crowds of people walking below.


The upper floor of the building needs repair. The statues also begin to fall to pieces, unfortunately.

  • Address: pavilion 1, Prospect Mira, 119c1. The building is located between the fontains "Stone Flower" and "Friendship of Nations of the USSR".  
  • The nearest metro stations: VDNKh, Botanicheskiy Sad.
