Russia has created a fairyland with its pavilion, showcasing a colorful and at-tractive image as seen through the eyes of children.

With the theme New Russia: City and Citizen, the pavilion features 12 towers, which are 20 meters tall and colored in traditional white, red and gold.

The structures represent ancient Ural mountain villages, in both shape and organization, dating back 3,000 years ago, with innovative touches of irregular shapes demonstrating the diversity of Russia's ancient and modern cities.

Inside the three-story main building is a display of classic scenes from the fairytale The Adventures of Dunno and His Friends, written by Russian children's author Niko-lay Nosov. Through the protagonist Dunno, the cultural and technological development of Russia is revealed.

The adventures feature three fictional cities including the City of Flowers, the City of Sun and the City of Moon, which constitute the three main exhibition areas. The walls of the pavilion have been painted in vivid and diverse colors and visitors can enter mushroom-shape houses as if in a fairytale.

The exhibition hall of the pavilion will showcase environmentally-friendly technology, new clean energy and space exploration, including Yury Gagarin's 1961 pioneering flight that made him the first man in space.

Russian President Dmitri Medvedev is expected to visit the pavilion on September 28 to meet with visitors.
