What To Expect
The All-Russian Exhibition Centre (or VVTS) was designed as a showpiece of Stalinist monumental art. There are a number of ornate pavilions with mosaic ribbons, gilded spires, tiled arabesques, built to show the achievements of Soviet republics and planned economy spread over 500 acres.
Among the highlights are the Fountain of the Friendship of People with 16 gilded statues of maidens in national costumes of former republics of the USSR, and a mosaic-encrusted Stone Fountain.
Another even more celebrated monument, "The Worker and the Collective Farm Girl", was designed by Vera Mukhina for the Soviet Pavilion at the 1937 Paris Expo. The colossal twin figures 25 meters high on a pedestal of another 30m raising the hammer and sickle, synthesized art, science and technology and has become a symbol of Soviet industrial progress.
