Monument to Catherine the Great, Krasnodar
(4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Certainly, a monument created by the wizard, it's so monumental and beautiful that adorns practically kaput reconstructions square (both born in the year 1945 and native Krasnodar remember all his transformation). Yes, a number of preserved two pre-revolutionary buildings (3-storey single storey mansion arbitration series) plus the historical fence around school No. 48 and several Oaks-giants. The fact of the matter is that the monument is appropriate in Ekaterinodar, which has 80 years, and in Krasnodar (which I love as a small home), it is not entirely out of place. Opposite the building of the Zaksobranija (the former krajkom), whatever the fountain, obliquely-Kuban Cossack chorus (formerly the House of political education), around the square was trolley line. In general all the time something has changed, and not always for the better. This monument to Catherine in St. Petersburg-2 at the same place as that of 100 years ago, the buildings around it are the same. In General a strange impression, though rather positive, many visitors to the park with young children, taking pictures, walking, laughing. Life goes on and this is the merit of extraordinary Women, debates about which still continues. Vladimir d., g. Krasnodar
