Monument Tourist Spot
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.
