At Sky Town, the highest platforms are 52 feet (16 meters) in the air. If you’d rather stay a little closer to the ground, though, you’ll find courses and activities to suit a range of ages and experience levels. To save time on arrival, buy your tickets online in advance.
Things to Know Before You Go
Avoid the highest courses if you’re scared of heights—once you begin a course, it’s difficult to get back down without completing it.
While instructors are on hand and safety equipment is available at Sky Town, be proactive regarding your own safety and that of your kids (e.g. always verify that harnesses are properly fastened). Some visitors have experienced a lack of staff concern for safety.
How to Get There
Sky Town is located at the All-Russian Exhibition Center (VDNKh), just north of central Moscow. The metro is the easiest way to get around the city, and Sky Town is a short walk from each of these stations: VDNKh, Fonvizinskaya, Petrovsko-Razumovskaya, Vladykino, and Botanicheskiy Sad.
When to Get There
On weekends, waiting times can be long, because only a few people at a time are allowed on each course. For fewer crowds (and cheaper tickets), go on a weekday.
Visit the Moskvarium
If you’re looking for something else to do near Sky Town, check out the Moskvarium, a large aquarium. Surround yourself with fish by walking through the glass tunnel, or browse the exhibits on different aspects of sea life. You might even catch a water-based dance performance.
