Moscow in miniature
The peculiarity of this city model is amazing detailed elaboration and relief. All the buildings are detached, each of them has four carefully recreated fronts. Thanks to the modern equipment Moscow craftsmen succeeded in reproducing such small details as facing, window frames, door casing and eaves. It should be pointed that the visitors of the exhibition will be able to see the mosaic and bas-reliefs on the fronts of the main historic buildings such as, for example, Bolshoi Theatre. If you are lucky you will hear the Kremlin Clock striking on the Spasskaya Tower of the Moscow Kremlin and the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour bells ringing. While visiting the exhibition Moscow tour guides recommend that you pay special attention to the great results of recreating Moskva River on the city model. The effect of a small ripple is achieved by using a special glue that is applied with strokes of a paint-brush on the organic glass.
The craftsmen who carried out this great project deserve unique credit for the interactive lighting system. It gives the visitors of the exhibition an opportunity to lighten different buildings – social, cultural and household facilities. It's interesting that to supply 70 square meters of this city model with light effects more than 7 kilometers of wires and 62000 light diodes were used. It took about 3 years to perform a city model in its actual state, but the finishing of it is planned for 2017. About 80 artists and architects took part in this really large-scale project.
You can estimate they work visiting pavilion 75 of All-Russia Exhibition Centre VDNKh during your Moscow tours. The exhibition is free, it is open every day (except Monday), from 11 a.m to 7 p.m
