The view of the Friendship of Nations square at VDNKh in twilight before beginning of Turetsky Choir Concert in front of the Central pavilion “House of Nations of Russia” on the second day of the 6th International Festival "Circle of Light" in Moscow. The pavilion built in 1954 in wedding cake style that was popular in middle of 20th century, at that time were also built the famous seven Stalin high-rises (“Seven Sisters”). In the center of the square is located beautiful fountain "Friendship of Nations" which was created to glorify the people of the Soviet Union. Originally the square was called “Kolhoz Square” dedicated to collective farms in USSR, but later it was renamed by the name of the fountain. The exhibition center was opened in 1939 as the All-Union Agricultural Exhibition (VSKhV), but later, in 1959, it was renamed to All-Union Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy (VDNKh).
