Iron Thermometre

The huge iron thermometre was presented to the Lenin Central Stadium by the workers of the Moscow metallurgic plant to commemorate the Sixth Youth and Students Festival in 1957. The thermometre remained fixed to a wall of the Grand Sports Arena until February 2014. It was then dismounted with a lift crane to facilitate the reconstruction of the arena. The legend says, the thermometre had been with pure spirits until it occurred to someone resourceful to make a hole in the tube and steal the valuable liquid.
