Abduction of Europa Fountain

Europe Square

In 2002 an unusual fountain known as "Abduction of Europa" was erected near the Kievsky Railway Station. The Fountain is located in Europe Square.

The sculpture represents an 11-meter high construction. It corresponds to modern abstract style and displays a scene from the ancient Greek mythology. As envisioned by the creator of the fountain Olivier Strebelle, Zeus in the likeness of a bull is kidnapping a beautiful maiden Europa. The Fountain consists of 5 round basins placed on top of each other. The upper basin contains a sculpture surrounded by constantly squirting jets of water.
