Fountain with Golden Statues

Fountain with Golden Statues

Here is one more picture of the beautiful fountain "Friendship of Nations" which I took almost 1 year ago. The fountain is one of the main attractions at the All-Russian Exhibition Center (VVTs). The Exhibition was founded at 1939 as agricultural exhibition of Soviet Union. During the years of Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) this exhibition was closed, and was only reopened in 1954 after death of Stalin (1953). The Fountain has gilded statues of maidens in the national costumes of the sixteen Soviet republics demurely encircle a golden wheat sheaf. In 2006 it has been renovated, so that you can see that the statues are shining gold as like recently made.

We recently spent two days with our friends in Moscow and cannot say enough good things about our experience with Arthur! He is very knowledgeable about Moscow history and makes you feel so comfortable during your visit! Arthur was always on time and excited and ready to share his city. We only had 2 days in Moscow and Arthur was amazing at helping see all the great sites in a short time, without ever feeling rushed. On our last day, Arthur took us to a great restaurant where he helped us to choose traditional Russian food from the menu! Arthur was more than a guide, he was a friend and we are very grateful to have met him. Thank you for helping us make our visit to Moscow one of our most favorite experiences we've had! Keep up the good work!
