In June 2009 the International Convention on Culture and Economy The 29th Hanseatic Days of the New Time was held in Veliky Novgorod. A round granite fountain was constructed as a symbol of a round table. On the dark granite there are 16 emblems of Hanseatic States mosaicing a colored panel. Twice a week in summer, money is taken from the fountain and put into Novgorod treasury. The drama performance of collecting money is based on Novgorod legends and beliefs.
