The mermaid is the first “sea water fountain” created on Sportivnaya Embankment in June 2003. It was a gift from the mayor to the inhabitants and visitors of the city, on the 143th anniversary of the foundation of the city. The new fountains are located in the waters of the Sportivnaya port, a hundred meters from the coast. The central fountain throws water 20 meters high, while the four others on the sides reach a height of 10 meters. The mermaid’s sculpture is made of concrete covered in bronze painting and half buried in the water. It is 2.5 meters high.
