The first fountains to undergo conservation for the winter period are those in the Moscow and Lenin Squares.
The fountains of St. Petersburg are to be put out of operation for winter. The conservation process started on October 1 and will take a month.
The first fountains to be put out are those in the Moscow Square and in the Lenin Square. These fountain complexes are more complicated and need more time for conservation.
To get a fountain ready for the winter, it should be drained, the pumping and lighting systems dismantled and the entire mechanism sealed. This helps prevent damage from cold temperature.
There are over 50 fountains in St. Petersburg. All of them will be conserved for the winter.
