The big day is now almost here. On 29 February in Moscow, the gates will open to Dream Island, one of the most important projects in recent years and not only in the Russian capital: investment of 1.5 billion dollars and promoted as the largest indoor theme park in all of Europe.

The location is the southern part of Moscow, about 10 minutes by car from the Kremlin, on a site covering 100ha (the equivalent of about 140 football fields) overlooking the Moscow River and that in the Soviet era was called Nagatino Park.
