Fountain Friendship of Nations

Kansojen ystävyys-suihkulähde

5.9.1988 from my sister.

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 framed by an octahedral bowl of red granite with a surface area of 4,000 square meters. The fountain is serviced by a complex system of eight powerful pumps that can shoot 1,200 liters of
water from 800 jets to the height of 24 meters per second.
