Russia Pavilion

Russia Pavilion
With the theme “New Russia: city and citizen”, the 6,000-square-meter Russia Pavilion is located at Zone C of the Expo site.

Russia Pavilion features 12 white towers inspired by traditional Russian women's costume. The 20-meter towers, in white, red and gold, will duplicate the ancient Ural towns dating back 3,000 years ago, but given a modern touch with their irregular shapes. They demonstrate the diversity of both ancient and modern cities. A 15-meter-tall central building will link the towers.

Russian Pavilion is decorated as a beautiful, exquisite and fairy-tale children city, inspired by “The Adventures of DUNNO and His friends” written by children’s author Nikolay Nosov. The novel tells the story of Neznaika, a 15-year-old boy and his friends. They have journeys to some fantastic cities where cars are fueled by strawberry jam and huge cakes are used as houses. Their adventures include three fictional cities: the City of Flowers, the City of Sun and the City of Moon, which will be the three main exhibition areas. The City of Flowers will exhibit environment-related technology. The City of Sun will showcase new clean energies. The City of Moon will focus on space exploration. Yury Gagarin's 1961 flight which made him the first man in space will be showcased. Four of the 12 towers will be accessible to the public, with different Russian regions having showcases. The other towers will be VIP rooms or be closed for technical uses. On the scenery full of humor and children’s taste, visits walking down secret roads will have some mysterious and interesting discoveries coming from creation and invention of Russian children and young scientists

Russia National Day is scheduled on September 28, 2010. Then officials of Russia Pavilion will hold a celebration on a large scale, and several Russian perform parties will dish up an excellent performance rich in Russian characteristics.
