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 was lucky enough to book an 8 hours night Moscow tour with Arthur while having a window between two flights.
Arthur has been such a great guide from the very beginning till the end and made this night tour one of the best things I have ever done.
From picking me up and dropping me back at the airport to showing me the city, helping me better understand its history and, nevertheless, being my personal professional photographer, Arthur is one of the best guides I have ever met. He really puts passion in what he does and offered me an unforgettable experience and around 300 excellent photos to remember it.
I recommend Arthur's services from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you!!!
