The main skating rink of Russia was opened in Moscow

On 1st of December the Main Skating Rink of the country opens at VDNH! This is not an exaggeration; this title was officially awarded to the ring by the Russian Guinness Book of records. No ice rink in Russia and abroad can boast with such size and rich infrastructure.

For more than 50 years skating at the rink of VDNH is a traditional winter fun for the Muscovites. But since last year the Exhibition went beyond the usual pouring ice practice. It is a public knowledge that we opened the Main Skating Rink of the country that starts its second season at the end of November.

This winter, the largest skating rink with an artificial surface will stretch on the main alley — from the pavilion #1 «Central» to the pavilion #58 «Agriculture». Going round the fountains «Friendship of the Peoples» and «Stone Flower» VDNH's skating rink actually takes more than 20 000 sq. m.

And if you take into account its infrastructure, the total area will be 60 000 square meters! 4500 people can skate at the skating rink of VDNH at the same time. Those not skating confidently will always be helped by the instructors. Just like last year the rink will be decorated with the picturesque bridge – a place for dating and selfie.

New for this year: this year rapid passages will be organized. This will ensure greater publicity comparing to the last season. Points of ticket sale will be located at every entrance as well as at the rental stations #1 and #2.

The area of the children's skating rink of VDNH is increased this year. Now it is twice bigger. A special entrance pavilion with skate rental and a ticket sale will start working here. At the request of visitors the pavilion will have a children’s cafe and a baby care room.

For those who come with their own skates, there will be a special pavilion with benches to change for the skates and luggage storage.

Comfortable food court will blend in to the infrastructure of the rink. On the territory of the court there will be open cafes for every taste and budget, as well as two cozy restaurants where one can eat without taking off the skates.

One of the novelties of the coming season is the school of figure skating by Ilya Averbukh «Path to Success». Along with the experienced instructors, boys and girls will not only learn how to slide correctly, but will also master the basic steps. The first lessons and master classes are for children from 4 to 12 y.o.

Hockey rink will be located between the pavilions #8 and #9, where «Port at VDNH» was located in summer. This place will let to organize the space effectively. There will be warm dressing rooms and storage space for sports equipment.

TIME: VDNH’s skating rink will operate daily except Monday with a break for technical servicingfrom 15:00 till 17:00.

OPENING HOURS: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday — from 11:00 till 23:00, Friday, Saturday, Sunday — from 10:00 till 23:00
