Leisure activities in Sokolniki

Sokolniki Museum and Educational Centre is located in the heart of the beautiful landscaped Sokolniki Park, which is one of the oldest and well-developed parks in Moscow. After visiting our event you can walk along the numerous green shady valleys, enjoy the beautiful rose and lilac gardens near ECC “Sokolniki”, or spend some peaceful moments by the shores of numerous picturesque ponds.

If you prefer active leisure, there are plenty of options for you, with bicycles, pedicabs, segways, hoverboards, and other exotic contraptions to rent. While attending an important conference or selecting exclusive presents at a trade show at ECC Sokilniki, you can safely leave your children with experienced instructors at one of several kids’ studios in the park.

And of course, winter is skating time – Festivalnaya square in front of exhibition pavilions transforms into an open-air skating rink!
