Monument to Catherine the Great, Krasnodar

4.6
Admire the artistic composition and view the depiction of the city's earliest history at Monument to Catherine the Great. The monument celebrates the empress and her grant of the Kuban area, together with the newly founded city, to the Cossacks. During that time the city was known as Yekaterinodar, or Catherine's Gift. The name stood until the Communist Revolution, when it was changed and the monument was taken down. Now fully restored, the attraction represents the statue of Catherine on a marble pillar, presenting the gift charter to the Cossacks.
