Week three: VDNKh, neighborhoods

shuttle

VDNKh is the former site of the All-Soviet Exhibition Center, a collection of ornate Stalinist buildings showcasing different countries in the USSR. Now it’s full of carnival rides, and the pavilions still in use house shops and currency exchanges. There are a few random things from the Soviet era up on display here as well, including this shuttle and plane.

In the third week I moved from a hostel in downtown Moscow to a homestay in a neighborhood outside the main area of the city.

Kruschev-era apartment blocks characterize these kinds of neighborhoods.
