Illuminated Fountain of Friendship of People at Twilight
The beautiful fountain of Friendship of People lit with warm colors at twilight at one golden Autumn evening. The fountain is a visiting card of VDNKh, the All-Union Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy and one of famous landmarks of Moscow city.
The “Friendship of Nations” fountain was created on the grounds of the exhibition in 1954 and became the symbol which reflects the celebration and high spirits associated with the victory in the WWII, embodying the national dream of prosperity in the whole world. The initial name for this well-known fountain was the "Golden Wheat Sheaf". Sixteen gilded statues of women are standing around this composition, symbolizing the republics of the Soviet Union before the 1956.
