VDNH

This is is the Stone Flower fountain, built in 1954. It's one of the large fountains at VDNH (now called VVC - Vserossiskiy Vystavochniy Centre, All Russian Exhibition Center in English). VDNH is a large park and exhibition center. Originally it was made to be a large trade center, but in the present day it's a place for leisure more than trade. The whole territory is quite large, with many fountains, wonderfully ornate buildings, and even a botanical garden! The building in the background is the Ukrainian Pavilion, which is my favorite building from the whole park.
I'll post pictures of that on Wednesday.
