Originally named the 'Palace of Sino-Soviet Friendship', the Shanghai Exhibition Center was intended to showcase Chinese advances in agriculture and industrial technology. The building was renamed to 'Shanghai Pavilion' when the relations between China and the Soviet Union began to sour.
Today the 'Shanghai Exhibition Center' with its gilded spire topped with the Soviet star is one of the most iconic buildings in Shanghai - testament to the ties between the two countries, their shared history and the influence the Soviet Union once enjoyed in China. It is still in use as an exhibition space.
