A theme park, similar to the world-known Disneyland may appear in the Nagatinsky floodplain in Moscow. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin told reporters that "the city needs a theme park, full of attractions and sports facilities."
This year, it is planned to hold a competition for the project and attract investors.
The idea of the project was voiced last year too. In particular, Moscow officials discussed a possibility to build the Lotte World, which was developed by South Korea. Afterwards, it was said that the theme park would be devoted to the Russian folklore.
Presidential candidate Ksenia Sobchak, who was accredited for the press conference by Vladimir Putin from Dozhd (Rain) television channel, asked Putin about competition at the coming election
