RUSSIA ~Moscow-People’s Friendship Fountain ~

A great official from Russia (RU-680935). This fountain is on the list of the world's most breathtaking fountains in the world... Wish I could visit it someday... Thanks a lot Lyudmila!

With lovely stamps!

The All-Russian Exhibition Centre. The Central Pavilion 1954.
The People’s Friendship Fountain (also known as Friendship of Nations) on Moscow features 16 gilded statues of maidens in their national costumes, representing all the Soviet Union Republics. The fountain is complemented by a red granite octahedral pond with a surface area of 4000 square meters. This fountain is run by an eight-pump system that can shoot 1200 liters of water from the jet to reach 800 high 24 meters per second.
