  • The problem of shortage of drinking water in Feodosiya has become a serious problem in the late 19th century, when the city grew and developed rapidly. Search for sources of fresh water, but since ancient times, people were able to, firstly, in these areas the aquifers of the soil were hard enough available deep there, and secondly, in order to build on their base city water, need serious financial investments. Great artist Aivazovsky, being a man, whose hometown issues were close and clear, has made an invaluable contribution to the development of water supply. But first he gave the city a source of fresh water, excavated in his estate. For the distribution of fresh water from this source in Seaside Park in 1888 year built a fountain, authored by Aivazovsky himself. He also gave money to build the fountain. Interestingly, Aivazovsky has decided to devote this fountain to the Emperor-Emperor Alexander III, obozhavshemu and often byvavshemu here. But the King-peacemaker from such Dara refused, considering the fair to the fountain was named after artist-patron. The inscription "FONTAN I.k. Aivazovsky" remained at the fountain since that time. But look closely, and you'll see that left traces appear from her earlier inscriptions "FONTAN EMPEROR ALEXANDER". It is the traces of history itself. Fountain, unfortunately, have not been functioning-not enough money to repair its water system, and patrons such as Aivazovsky, in present-day Feodosiya was not found yet.
