During the light show, the façade of the pavilion number one at VDNKh 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 “Friendship of Nations” fountain was created 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”.
