Fountain "Princess Turandot "

One of the most long-suffering fountains in Moscow which no one vandal passes by is a fountain "Princess Turandot ". The fountain is located not far from the theater named after E. Vakhtangov in Old Arbat Street.

 

 

Despite its popularity the fountain is in perfect condition and it is being restored as soon as possible after vandal raids. The capricious princess became a symbolic figure and the mascot of the theater.

The monument looks like a large oval bowl, with a fountain system. At the top of the fountain there is a gold covered throne with a princess Turandot on it.

Around the monument there is a long stone bench and at nights it is illuminated. The illumination creates a special romantic atmosphere which attracts loving couples who date on the bench near the monument. The sculptor of the fountain is Alexander Burganov. It was unveiled in 1997, in honor of the 75th anniversary of the premiere of the play..

 

  • Address: Arbat Street, 26
