Students from different countries of the world start the Fountain of the Russian University of Peoples' Friendship
A touching symbol of the ceremony was RUDN University paper boats sailed by dozens of students from Russia, Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe and Arab countries as symbols of success, dreams, wishes of happiness to the world. The program of the event was continued by a dance flashmob under umbrellas - even the rain did not scare the students!
The fountain complex is a gift of the Moscow Government to the University, the opening ceremony was held in 2001. The grandiose two-level composition impresses at first sight. From the bottom of the first level, vertical "geysers" rise, while the upper part is a pool with a smooth water surface with the area of 2,500 sq.m.
