      There are 55 fountains and 4 fountain complexes in St. Petersburg. 38 of them will be working this summer season in the city.

       On April 12, the first fountain was activated in the Moscow's All-Russia Exhibition Centre. It is a well-known fountain line on the main lane of the Centre. The biggest fountains of the park ("Friendship of Nations", the Golden Spike, the Stone Flower) will start their work in two weeks, on April 30, as well as all the other fountains in the city.
