New Symbols
of Moscow

Happy birthday, dear Moscow!

В этом году Москве исполняется 873 года. За последнее время в столице появилось множество необычных пространств: парков, скверов, арт-кластеров, спортивных объектов, масштабных детских развлекательных зон и других площадок. Калейдоскоп традиционных достопримечательностей Москвы пополняется все новыми объектами, такими как парк «Зарядье», Московская канатная дорога в Лужниках, гастромарект «Депо» и другими.

В честь дня рождения Москвы предлагаем вам поближе познакомиться с наградами, достижениями и новыми символами современной столицы.

In 2019, thanks to the votes of tourists and industry experts, Moscow won the key nomination of the prestigious World Travel Awards, the World's Leading City Destination.

Two years ago, Moscow opened its first cable car which connects Sparrow Hills and the Luzhniki sports complex. The trip offers mesmerising panoramic views of the city and the Moskva River, plus it's a way to get from Sparrow Hills to the Luzhniki sports complex as fast as possible, in only seven minutes.

The Dream Island park opened in February 2020 has become Europe's largest all-season indoor amusement park. Park visitors are invited to nine fantasy worlds with numerous amusement rides, eye-catching shows, interactive entertainment activities, themed cafés and shops.

Zaryadye Park is the largest park to have appeared in the centre of Moscow in the past 70 years. Thanks to its huge collection of plants, a unique landscape, and architectural landmarks, Time magazine listed Zaryadye amongst the 100 best places in the world.

The Main Exhibition of the Country, VDNH, is experiencing a renaissance. Many pavilions have been renovated, and the territory has undergone large-scale improvements. New spaces have sprung up at VDNH, such as a landscape park with an eco-trail, the restored Oil Pavilion, the Slovo ('Word') Centre in the Agriculture Pavilion, and the Cosmonautics and Aviation Centre in the Space Pavilion.

The renovated Miusskoye streetcar depot now houses DEPO, the biggest food mall in Europe, featuring traditional cuisines of Russia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Vietnam, Greece, Israel, China, Mexico, and other countries.

The legendary Luzhniki Olympic complex has undergone a massive reconstruction and now includes several new facilities. The main stadium of the country can now hold 81,000 people and includes a Water Sports Palace and an Artistic Gymnastics Palace.
