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.

We recently enjoyed four days in Moscow. Although we are very independant travellers and had done a great deal of reading we were very pleased to have the additional assistance of Arthur while he coped with the Moscow traffic and also his assistance in getting us to and aboard the train to St Petersburg. We had a marvelous driving tour of Moscow by night with Arthur before boarding the train at midnight. We highly recommend Arthur's services.
