Fountains

Aleksander Zelikov/ТАSS

There are three fountains in the boulevard part of Prospekt Lenina (Lenina Avenue). They all are in the same style with minor differences in the architecture of their granite bowls. These fountains were built more than 50 years ago. The first one is at the cross-section of Prospekt Lenina and Komsomolskaya Ulitsa (Komsomolskaya Street). The second one is at Prospekt Lenina and Ulitsa Simbirtseva (Simbirtseva Street). The third fountain is in mid-street between two institutions of higher education: Volgograd State Technical University and Volgograd State University of Social Science and Pedagogy. Despite its rather basic architecture, it is this third fountain that seems to be favoured by Volgograd townsfolk. Located where young people love to congregate in the middle between the pedagogical and technical universities, it is no surprise that this fountain is the preferred spot for romantic trysts.
