VDNKh, pronounced “vedeenkha”, is a trade show and amusement park located in the north of Moscow featuring more than 250 Soviet-era palaces and pavilions, numerous fountains, the Vostok rocket and the Space Pavilion. The park is better known by Moscovites under the acronym VDNKh, which stands for Vystavka Dostizheniy Narodnovo Khozyaystva (Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy). The book depicts images of the buildings, the Monument to the Conquerors of Space together with a series of eerie portraits of people posing with some wax statues on loan from the Wax Museum in Saint Petersburg and shown at the VDNKh.
