Local Sightseeing

Just 10 minutes' walk from the Vostok Hotel is the All-Russian Exhibition Center (VVTs in the Russian abbreviation), which until 1991 bore the slightly cumbersome title of Exhibitions of the Achievements of the National Economy of the USSR. Today the VVTs is Moscow's largest exhibition space, with hundreds of national and international exhibitions taking place there every year.

Not far from the VVTs is the Russian Academy of Sciences' Main Botanical Gardens. The Gardens were laid out in 1945 on the former Ostankino Forest to mark the 200th anniversary of the Academy of Sciences. Today they are home to more than 20,000 sorts of plants. The herbaria contain the world's largest collection, with more than 135,000.

Roughly 10 minutes' walk from the hotel is the Astronautics Memorial Museum. The museum is housed in a building crowned with a rocket blasting off, and the exhibition hall is decorated to look like the inside of a spaceship. The museum contains more than 6,000 items, including spacesuits, astronaut food, and private items, documents, etc.
