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.

We spent 6 amazing days in Moscow with Arthur as our guide. We echo the comments of the other travellers who have left comments and can only add that the time in Moscow would not have been so memorable if it were not for your excellent services, your guiding knowledge of Moscow, your help with my husband's handicap, your cheerfullness and excellent English. We highly recommend your services to anyone visiting Moscow whether on business or vacation. Thank you for the CD of photos, the hymns of the Orthodox church and the Russian Military marches. If we return, we will certainly use you again. Keep that cheerful outlook. Good Luck.
