Nataly and Alexander Rotonda
To the 200th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin, on June 6, 1999, behind the Church of the Ascension of the Lord (Big Resurrection) at the Nikitsky Vorota, in which the poet got married with the beautiful Natalia Goncharova, the fountain-rotunda «Nataly and Alexander», was opened.

The authors of the project, sculptor Mikhail Dronov and architect Mikhail Belov, portrayed young people meeting under the murmur of flowing streams.

For the columns surrounding the sculptural composition of Alexander and Natalia, Carrara marble was used, which was brought to Moscow from Italy.

A feature of this fountain can be considered the fact that among its jets directed to the sculpture, there are 4 from which drinking water beats.
