DAY  4

Breakfast.

The Museum of the Cold War. It`s a unique museum dedicated to an important period in the human history called the Cold War. The museum transfers you to 1950s when the relationship between the USA and the Soviet Union became critical and world lived in expectation of an atomic war. The museum represents a nuclear bunker that was built in 1951 by the order of Stalin. The bunker was built using the same techniques as the metro and in fact, the bunker has common tunnels with the metro (the Moscow subway). An amazing fact that this, really huge, atomic bunker runs under the center of Moscow under the Taganskaya square. In 1960s the bunker was ready to use. The bunker was equipped with the system of air purifying, and also there were fuel, water and food. But when in 1970s the world pressure became less, the bunker lost its urgency and in 1990s was absolutely abandoned. The revival of the bunker began in 2006 with an idea of creating a unique museum.

Lunch.

A tour to VDNH the magnificent park in the north of Moscow, that features more than 250 Soviet-era palaces and pavilions, arches and fountains, the Vostok rocket and the Soviet aircraft. The Soviet name VDNKH means  "the Exhibition of the Achievements of the National Economy". The area of this complex is greater than that of the Principality of Monaco; it is like a fantastic town with its own avenues, squares and gardens. The park was built during Stalin's time. The construction started in 1930s, and in 1954 the exhibition complex acquired the architectural works we see today. Created to be a showcase for the achievements of the Soviet empire, VDNH had pavilions dedicated to a particular industry or a field (engineering, space, atomic energy, education, Soviet culture and many others). There are also pavilions representing various Soviet Republics, with each boasting a unique architectural design. Walking around the fountain of people's friendship, visitors can have an imaginary trip around the whole Soviet Empire. One of the most beautiful pavilions belongs to Uzbekistan, distinguished by the airy elegance of its eastern architecture. Not far from the park entrance is the famous Soviet sculpture by Vera Muhina Worker and Collective Farm Girl. The gigantic figures of man and woman holding hammer and sickle became a Soviet symbol.
