Tower with Crown and Spire

Tower with Crown and Spire

The beautiful building of a pavilion, which represented Ukraine republic in USSR, was built at the All-Russia Exhibition Center (former VDNKh) in 1939 and reconstructed in1947-1954 under the design by architects A. Tatsiy and K. Ivanchenko (Ukrainian architect). It is a historic and cultural monument of national significance. One of the most impressive features of the pavilion Ukraine is it's glorious tower on the top of the building.

The tower consists of an open-worked crown with a spire (you can see on this picture), which was "interwoven" of flowers, herbs, and spikes, rose over the building, sparkling with gold and increasing the height of the building to 42 meters.

The facade of the pavilion, made of alabaster panels, was decorated by golden spikes and then (after reconstruction) it was finished with Ukrainian majolica tile (you can see small part of the facade decorations right on the bottom of this picture).

I had a couple of requests for my day trip to Moscow which didn’t include the normal touristy activities but I also wanted to see the famous sites in the red square. Arthur managed to incorporate my requirements and include all the famous sites in one day. The day didn’t feel rushed and everything was well timed and planned. The way the different activities were connected flowed effortlessly. He recommended other activities for me to do on other days and different types of cuisines to try. I particularly liked the Ukrainian restaurant and he took the most beautiful photos of me despite the bitterly cold winter temperature in Moscow. Arthur is a fantastic guide!!!
