About the Main Entrance

Gorky Park Main Entrance was built in 1995 following G Shuko and A Spasov architects' projects. At different times, there were Park's administration departments inside the pylons of the Entrance. In the 70s, cinema- and photo-studio also were located there. The main room was used for technical needs of the Park and has never been open for visitors.

In February 2014, the Main Entrance, as a symbol of the Park and the city was closed for restoration works to take place. The inside part of the building was advanced and the engineering works has been carried out to consolidate the building, leaving the original historical appearance of the Entrance from the outside. The viewing platform has been created on the rooftop of the building. Now you can easily get upstairs using elevators that have been especially installed for the visitors' convenience.

Sergey Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow: « We are carrying on the recreational works of the Park of Culture and Leisure and keep on working on the number of objects located on its territory. Vorobiovy Hills and Neskuchny Garden restoration works are planed for this year. One of the most serious among those objects is Gorky Park Main Entrance complex restoration.»

Olga Zakharova, Gorky Park Director: «The creation of the viewing platform is an essential part of the restoration process, the functional, bright and unusual decision of the architects. Despite using of Shuko and Spasov architects' plans and schemes during the works, the opportunities that modern age has to offer gave us new ways of construction that only improved the image of the Main Entrance. The surface of the viewing platform is 555 square meters. There is a stunning view on Moscow from 17.3 meters' high. From here, you can see Peter the Great monument, domes of the Cathedral of the Christ the Savior and, of course, Gorky Park form the bird's view!»
