  • Walking in the alleys of the Arbat, we came to a small snow-covered square where stands the monument to the legendary snow-covered Polar Explorer, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Fridtjof Nansen. This man is the first in the world crossed Greenland on skis. Why is a monument to Fridtjof Nansen in this place? Yes because most recently in a mansion which is located behind the monument was the Moscow Committee of the Russian Red Cross Society.

  • «Nansens and why Amundsens?» (quote from Soviet humor). And it is said that He was well known, unlike today, when this character thoroughly forgotten. With this new found fun nerjadovoj monument, dedicated to Polar Explorer, scientist and public figure. At the same time to refresh your memory, read about it and learned the seriousness of Nansen's contribution saved from starvation of Soviet people after the civil war (Volga region). Nansen is depicted in full growth, near-children's figure with a loaf of bread. For the landmark monument is located immediately after the Embassy of Mexico. So are brought to starvation, and others who, it would seem, and no cases were forced to save, there is something to think about with the height of the current days.
