2016 is the year of the 120th anniversary of the All-Russian industrial and artistic exhibition in Nizhny Novgorod (VPHV). That was a large-scale world-class event that had an impact on the appearance and development of the city for years further. During the preparation for the VPHV in 1896 in Nizhny Novgorod was launched the first tram of the country, as well as funiculars. Public urban spaces have been reorganized and New public buildings have been constructed. Impressive work on the organization of the exhibition area (nowadays 1st of May Park) has been carried out. Innovative architectural and engineering construction projects have been presented by Shukhov. The world's first radio has been demonstrated by Popov, as well as the first Russian car by Yakovlev and Frese.
