Fountain with Golden Statues

Fountain with Golden Statues

Here is one more picture of the beautiful fountain "Friendship of Nations" which I took almost 1 year ago. The fountain is one of the main attractions at the All-Russian Exhibition Center (VVTs). The Exhibition was founded at 1939 as agricultural exhibition of Soviet Union. During the years of Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) this exhibition was closed, and was only reopened in 1954 after death of Stalin (1953). The Fountain has gilded statues of maidens in the national costumes of the sixteen Soviet republics demurely encircle a golden wheat sheaf. In 2006 it has been renovated, so that you can see that the statues are shining gold as like recently made.

I was in Moscow for two weeks on business. During this time I employed Arthur on a daily basis to take me to my numerous meetings around the city during the day as well as in the evening when I visited restaurants and bars. His knowledge of the city is excellent and he was able to find every address on time. He was always punctual and I found him pleasant and honest.

Using Arthur is much cheaper than using regular Moscow taxis which are very expensive and unreliable - on my previous trips to Moscow I used regular taxis and when I compared my expenses I found that using Arthur on a daily rate worked out cheaper than taking taxis. He is also a fun companion if you are travelling on your own. Highly recommended
