Statue Lyuba, Omsk

4.4
Sit down next to Statue Lyuba on the iron bench and take a picture. Considered an emblem and well-known curiosity of the city, the statue was constructed in 1994 and bears the name of the young wife of General Governor of Omsk, G. Kh. Gasford, who contracted tuberculosis and died at 17 years of age. "Lyuba" is the diminutive for Lyubov, meaning "love." When Lyuba was sick, she used to go outside to sit on a bench and enjoy the sun, a habit that was the inspiration for this statue.

  • One of the few for the millionth cities locations for photos. You can see that new and not quite organically looks among the old buildings of Lenin Street. How to exhibit contemporary art in the classical Museum. This monument has become a showpiece of the ongoing scandal. Suddenly a businessman bought the right appeared to the author and the demands of the city millions of dollars. While the city fights back in court. Not enough Omsku patrons. Greed exceeds tdazhe e a few good things that have been made.

  • Very beautiful installation. The symbol of the Central streets of the city. Many tourists taking pictures next to any. They say that it brings good luck.

  • Absolutely nothing. No city can symbolize this bench with a girl. There is no single word about merchant's wife Shanina, which held a little to the left and posterior to the sculpture factory. The remains of the foundations can still be seen. And as such, no piece of history-well just plain figurine.
