Powerful spotlights lit in blue color the scene of Turetsky Choir Concert in front of the Central pavilion “House of Nations of Russia” and water jets of the fountain “Friendship of People” with statutes of gold-plated female figures representing nations of USSR at VDNKh on the second day of the 6th International Festival "Circle of Light" 2016 in Moscow. During the light show, the fa?ade of the pavilion number one of the exhibition center become a screen for unique 3D-projections and night sky over the square of Friendship of Nations were lit by powerful spotlights and lasers from the stage.

The fountain “Friendship of Nations” was created at VDNKh in 1954. It was meant to become one of the main symbols of the exhibition. However, it 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 shining even at night gold-plated female figures symbolize all republics of USSR. The girls dressed in national costumes of each republic of Soviet Union have gathered around the fountain in a circle dance called in Russia “khorovod”.
