World Clock Fountain

Manezhnaya Square

"The World Clock" Fountain is situated directly above "Okhotny Ryad" underground shopping mall and represents its main dome.

A map of the northern hemisphere and names of the largest cities – world capitals – are depicted on the surface of the fountain’s glass dome. 24 time zones of the planet, which divide the sphere into sectors, can also be found on the fountain. There is a motionless ring with numbers at the bottom of the composition. Each sector is equipped with 12 light bulbs which add 5 minutes to real time when they are switched on.

The dome of the "World Clock" Fountain is constantly moving. Thus, it makes a full rotation on its axis within a day.
