Golden Statues

Golden Statues

When I walked at the All-Russian Exhibition center the Fountain of Friendship of Nations was turned off and was pretty cloudy and no sun light.... but at one moment the sun appeared throughout the grey skies and it was so incredible contrast with these beautiful golden statues, so I decided to make several shots...

"Friendship of Nations" is the main fountain at the All-Russian Exhibition Centre (VVTs). The Fountain has gilded statues of maidens in the national costumes of the sixteen Soviet republics demurely encircle a golden wheat sheaf.

On the background you can see the main pavilion (House of Russia's Nations) which was built in 1954. It has a strong vertical 56 meter-high tower decorated with gold-plated cereal pattern shot up in front of the entrance to the pavilion. The pavilion crowned by the spire with the star is rising to almost 100 meters high by ledges resembling steps of a gigantic staircase, hovering over the entire exhibition ensemble.

Arthur is an all-in-one Guide-Driver-Photographer, who is an excellent person to help you enjoy Moscow. With him, we managed to optimize our time in Moscow - seeing and doing way more than we could ever do on our own.
As a guide he is knowledgeable, efficient and responsive. He ferried us around safely and comfortably in his own car. He recommended a nicely-paced, comprehensive itinerary for us but allowed for flexibility of timing and our preferences.
The added bonus was that he captures all the memories of your experiences for you on his trusty camera so that you have wonderful pictures to save for posterity.
Special mention must be made of his ‘Moscow by Night’ tour which is a great introduction to the City. It provides a unique opportunity to capture wonderful photo-memoirs of so many places, from special vantage points that only Arthur knows about.
If you want to see Moscow in an enjoyable, hassle-free and cost-effective manner – Arthur is your man!
