It's obvious that those disappointed don't appreciate what they are looking at. It needs to be seen after dusk in the evening to appreciate the beauty of what is a unique victory memorial of the second world war, it was built in 1947 and at night the fountain and archway are lit with changing coloured projected lights.

Very disappointing. It's a sad little fountain. But the locals seem very fond of it so there's that.

I walked past this fountain during the day and if you did not know what you were looking for you would walk straight past it. Not very spectacular but it is a photo opportunity.

It is a good place to visit on your trip for the city break. It is situated near the upper end of Sumskaya street surrounded by beautiful garden. I loved to have my ice-cream there after long walk, to watch the city life around and chat with local buddies.

Maybe that is because I was with the woman I love. We had just made reservations at a wonderful restaurant, and I would be proposing the next day. So ya, I was in a wonderful mood. There was no water running, but I still enjoyed the changing light colors

It was a great fountain and it looked amazing in the evening. It is lighted up in blue and looks so amazing in the evening. A place to spend on a nice warm evening.
