Golden Statues

Golden Statues

When I walked at the All-Russian Exhibition center the Fountain of Friendship of Nations was turned off and was pretty cloudy and no sun light.... but at one moment the sun appeared throughout the grey skies and it was so incredible contrast with these beautiful golden statues, so I decided to make several shots...

"Friendship of Nations" is the main fountain at the All-Russian Exhibition Centre (VVTs). The Fountain has gilded statues of maidens in the national costumes of the sixteen Soviet republics demurely encircle a golden wheat sheaf.

On the background you can see the main pavilion (House of Russia's Nations) which was built in 1954. It has a strong vertical 56 meter-high tower decorated with gold-plated cereal pattern shot up in front of the entrance to the pavilion. The pavilion crowned by the spire with the star is rising to almost 100 meters high by ledges resembling steps of a gigantic staircase, hovering over the entire exhibition ensemble.

Just returned from a wonderful trip in russia, arthur was a great guide and helped us to learn a great deal about the people and history of the country.

Arthur was a great asset to our trip, we learned a great deal of the people and history,he's a wonderful guide and worked the schedule for us with the time we had available. In three days we were able to see the most important sites, including sergio p, the monastery outside of moscow. If I can help a fellow traveler get a better idea of what to expect,just ask arthur for my email and I will be glad to give you any additional information you may need. I know we were able to see as much as we did because of Arthur's help.
