The opening in 1939

An existing site, known as Ostankino Park (a country territory recently incorporated into the city limits), was approved in August 1935. The master plan by Vyacheslav Oltarzhevsky was approved in April 1936, and the first show season was announced to begin in July 1937.

The popularity of the would-be Exhibition among the agricultural workers was exceedingly high. The right to take part in it was contested by millions of collective farmers and sovkhoz workers, thousands of agronomists, zoo-technicians and machine-operators. The exhibition committee received around 250 thousand requests to present the displays.

The All-Union Exhibition of Agriculture has become an original contribution into the capital's architecture. An exhibition city that had sprung to life near its northern border on a 136 ha area included ponds, parks, experimental plots, 250 constructions of all kinds.

The sowed and plant areas on 20 ha represented the whole of the Soviet Union agriculture. Around 600 kinds of various crops were sown in one cereal-crop area. The exhibition garden presented a wonderful sight with its nearly 10 thousand plants. Among them were 600 sorts of horticultural crops, a rich collection of Michurin's crops. In total, 260 crops and over 3 thousand sorts were displayed in the open areas.

The country prepared for the opening of the All-Union Exhibition of Agriculture as for a big people's holiday and it took place on August 1, 1939. The first visitors came through an arch built according to the traditions of Ancient Rome triumphal archs. The success of the All-Union Exhibition of Agriculture was tremendous. From August 1 to October 25 it was visited by over 3,5 million people.

Present day

In 1992, VDNKh was renamed, receiving a new acronym VVC, which remained in use until 2014 and on 14 May 2014 the previous name VDNKh was restored, following an interactive poll. It occupies 2,375,000 square metres of which 266,000 square metres are used for indoor exhibits. The territory of VDNKh is greater than that of the Principality of Monaco and has approximately 400 buildings.

Currently, the larger international exhibitions are mostly held at the new facilities of Moscow Expo Center.
