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.

  • The monument looks good in the heart of the city. As I learned, he recovered and even not quite completed yet (there is some circuits). But to sit on a bench near him and admire them on the one hand and a fountain, on the other hand, it is possible without any problems. The benefit of warm weather in Krasnodar in October and change Moscow damp on 2-3 days of heat-simply for happiness

  • It is impossible to know the history of their country, uninterested her agents. The monument is very impressive. Should be very educational for children.

  • Monument to Catherine the great is situated in a very convenient location of the city of Krasnodar. You can visit and see it at any time of year and day and in any weather. The majestic. impressive, notable sculpture! You can include a visit to Catherine's square in weekend. Nearby Orthodox parish, monument to the liberators of Krasnodar, the monument to the people's artist Klara Luchko (near "Sycamore"), a beautiful Gorky Park with a pond and the beginning of streets Red with her attractions. Everywhere is clean, well cared for, green and you won't be bored even for children. I would like to once again visit this corner of Krasnodar at least to sit quietly on a bench in the Park, look at wedding procession, take pictures of all the sights, relax the mind from the daily bustle; If you're lucky-listen to songs performed by legendary Cossack choir or watch a good show in the theatre.
