Fountain and its decorations

Fountain and its decorations

Here you can see one of the most beautiful and, if to take its pool, the biggest fountain in Russia, which located at the All-Russia Exhibition Center (former VDNKh) and called "The Stone Flower". No doubt that Soviet architects and designers used the name and shape to this fountain with its divine beauty from Urals fairy tales by Pavel Bazhov.

To show you this beautiful fountain, which is located on opposite side of the Farmstead Square, right next after another gorgeous fountain "Friendship of People", and architectural ensemble of pavilions surrounding it, I decided to make a shot from the corner of the pool where was decorative hills made of fruits and vegetables. From other side of this pool, very close to pavilion "Ukraine" you can distinguish the shapes of "Stone Flower" whose decoration was based on Bazhov's narrations. On the right and left sides of this pool you can see bronze fish and birds, which are splashing inside.

On the background of this picture you can see two pavilions with impressive towers and spires: the building from the left represents Ukraine and another building from the right - Moscow, Ryazan, and Tula regions.

I think that this picture shows the special atmosphere of post Soviet Times at the famous All-Russia Exhibition Center, which nowadays is one of popular parks in Moscow.

I needed to send my wife and daughter to Moscow. Neither of them had ever been there and we all three were worried. After speaking with Arthur a few times I felt he could be trusted and even felt somewhat comfortable paying him in advance and using his services. When they arrived he met them at the airport. He drove them to their hotel and even showed them the area around the hotel. He himself contacted me to let me know they had arrived safely. I was glad I had trusted him with my two most valuable treasures
and would recommend anyone could do the same.
Months after that, my wife, daughter and I met in Moscow. Naturally and without any hesitation I called on his services again. Since we were arriving at different airports and at different times I was concerned, but he as before eased my mind by taking care of all the arrangements in Moscow for us. He picked the up at their airport, brought them to mine and patiently waited with them. During my visit to Moscow I had hired him numerous times and I was overwhelmed by his courtesy, his knowledge of the city and its vast history, and his willingness to help in any way he could. This was the best sightseeing excursion I had ever been on and the fact that his English was impeccable, and this made it that much better. I will use his services any and every time I am in Moscow. I would highly recommend to anyone going to Moscow, even if you have been there before he can make your stay the most pleasant. Believe me please, he is one man you must know in Moscow.
Truly sincere
