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.

If you read only one feedback, please read this one. If you don't believe what I write then read the 17 other PAGES(!) of testimonials to this truly great person and his service.
In a desperate hurry to find transportation from SVO airport to the hotel, I found Artur's number on the net. About to board the plane, I called him from London at 11am Russian time. By 6.30pm prompt he was waiting for us to clear passport & customs. An hour later (passport control!!), he was still there waiting patiently. He drove us back to the hotel already pointing out sites and facts on the way. Our Moscow experience had begun!!!!
Over the next few days, he gave us a personal, professional service like I have never experienced in my life. He was always early (even at 4.30 in the morning for our return pick up), always smiling, flexible, thoughtful, knowledgeable, passionate, courteous and hilariously funny.
He is a guide, a driver, a friend.
Please, don-t look anywhere else. Artur is Moscow!
