In August 2017 the third edition of the International Military-Technical Forum will be organised at Kubinka, near Moscow. ARMY 2017 will be held from 22 to 27 August at 3 locations; the Exhibition and Convention Centre terrain, the Alabino training ground and Kubinka air base. Like in 2015 and 2016, it looks like a promising event. In 2016 4Aviation also organised a tour to the event and the report of this tour can be found here.
The itinerary that follows is to be considered as preliminary.
On Wednesday 23 August we will fly to Moscow (probably making one stop on our way there) and return to the Netherlands on Tuesday 29 August 2017.
We will then head for ARMY on 4 days. On Thursday 24 August it will be a trade-day (accessible to all, but the entry fees will be a bit highter). Friday, Saturday and Sunday (25, 26 and 27 August) are public days.
During these days you can visit the 3 different locations (the Patriot Exhibition and Convention Centre terrain, the Alabino training ground and Kubinka air base).
On Monday 28 August we will return to Kubinka to capture the departure of (a large part of) the participants. For now we will do this from outside the fence (although we will try to arrange permission to access the terrain).
We have deliberately chosen a somewhat longer tour to give you the option to see and do a lot. ARMY consists of several items and it is very interesting to have a look at Alabino for instance (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrAf6euIcVA).
The museum in Monino is still open and certainly worth a visit. For those that are interested to visit this museum during the tour we can organise combined transportation. We can discuss arrangements and payment while we are in Moscow.
The city of Moscow is very beautiful and interesting. Planning a day to venture into the city is recommended as well. Our hotel is within the city, very close to a metro station.
If you want to go to Moscow longer or shorter that is possible too. We can offer a longer tour for € 60,- per person/per day. The flights are included in this option, but you have to arrange your own itinerary, transport etc. for the extra days. A shorter tour is possible from € 60,- per person/per day less.
Price for this tour is € 844,- per person. This price includes:
- Flight from The Netherlands to Russia
- Flight from Russia to The Netherlands
- Hotel accommodation (middle class hotels, twin share room basis, two beds and ensuite bathroom)
- All transportation in Russia
You can also book this tour without the airline tickets. In that case you will have to take care of the transportation to and from Russia. The price for the tour without airline tickets is € 584,- per person. The single-room supplement for this tour is € 225,-.
