Vystavochny Tsentr (Russian: Выставочный центр, English: Exhibition Center) is a Moscow Monorail station in the Ostankinsky District, North-Eastern Administrative Okrug, Moscow, Russia. The station is located close to the main entrance of VDNKh, which was named the All-Russia Exhibition Center (Всероссийский выставочный центр) in 1992–2014, hence the station name.

History[edit]

The station was opened on 20 November 2004 along with other 4 stations of the monorail line (All but the southern terminus Timiryazevskaya which was opened 9 days later). It began operation in "excursion mode". Only two trains were operating at the line, the interval between trains was as long as 30 minutes and station hours were from 10:00 to 16:00. The passengers could only board the trains at Ulitsa Sergeya Eisensteina station. On 10 January 2008 the line began regular operation serving passengers 6:50 - 23:00 and allowing them board trains at any station of the line. Also the ticket price was reduced from 50 to 19 rubles.
