Russia's main ice rink also holds weekly games, dance lessons and skating drills. Every Friday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. the rink transforms into an icy dance floor. Skating drills are held every Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, and every Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Larger games - every Saturday from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. Members of the "Funny Friends" crew are also on the ice at the same time for the youngest guests of VDNH at the children's skating rink.
Every Saturday and Sunday at the Ararat restaurant guests are treated to live music performed by talented musicians — a great opportunity to unwind after the working week and get in tune with a more relaxed self for the weekend.
