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.

Hello Arthur. I am glad the miscommunication was straightened out! I understand how one must be careful in wording and posting but I meant no insult. On another note, it would be a pleasure to use your expertise maybe about Russian History and current issues. I will be doing a research in St.Petersburg about history and change in Russia. Would love to chat ....Best regards,
