Tsereteli built a complex of twelve fountains in Manezhnaya Square, next to the Alexandrovskiy Garden. The main fountain is called The Geyser. Other fountains are the Four Seasons, symbolized by bronze horses; The Curtain (Ru: Zavesa), and Heroes of Fairy Tales, an array of canals with statues illustrating the fairy tales of Ivan Krylov.
In the artifical river, the Neglinka - Неглинка, are bronze sculpture groups depicting fairy tales by Ivan Andreyevich Krylov - Иван Андреевич Крылов (1769-1844). They are (from north to south):
The Fox and the crane - Лисица и журавль
The Frog Princess - Царевна-лягушка
(Princes and goose)
(woman and plant)
The Wolf and the Bear - Волк и медведь
Firebird - Жар-птица
Old Man with goldfish - Старика с Золотой Рыбкой
(Mermaid?)
