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.

I visited Moscow twice within some weeks, once for private reasons and once for Business.
I had Arthur both as Guide and as Driver for several needed transports, mainly from and to Airport. I also booked some tours with him, one was the “Best of Moscow” and the other one, just recently was a “Moscow by Night” Tour. Arthur has a very deep knowledge about history and culture of Moscow/Russia, but he transfers his knowledge in an easy, sometimes also funny way.
He is very precise on time (very important for me as Swiss  ) and also knows how to avoid Moscow traffic jams, which saves a lot of time.
During my stays, my relation to Arthur turned from Client to Friend. I can highly recommend to book his services, it worth every Dollar, Euro or Ruble you invest in him.
