  • The history of our city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky began in October of the year 1740 with the arrival here of the Second Kamchatka Expedition, headed by well-known Vitus Jonassen Bering. It is Behring and subsequently becomes the founder of the city, and the monument erected to him, is the oldest monument in the entire far East region of Russia. Monument to the great head-first on the initiative of the Chief of the Kamchatka P.i. Rikord on own donations made in St. Petersburg and established in the territory of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in 1826 year Navy officers as a sign of gratitude and respect to the great Navigator, and founder of Petropavlovsk. Monument later transferred 4 times. And now he is and stands on Sovetskaya Street. The monument is a cast iron column, resembling Cannon barrel, and on the sides of the pedestal-wreaths-lit symbol of courage and bravery. On the cast-iron plate reads "Founder of Petropavlovsk in 1740 g. Navigator Bering. May be modestly and concisely, but we keep and honour the memory of a great man who has done so much for our Kamchatka! And just a few metres from the monument is and Cannon, which is also linked to Vitusom Behring. The fact of the matter is that before she was on paketbote "the Holy Apostle Peter, and on this great ship captain went to American shores. This here is a historical place. And while next to the monument, looking outside the avachinskaya Bay which stretches the vast Pacific Ocean, involuntarily want to exclaim-"Viva First! VIVAT Russian Fleet! Viva Russia! "all travelers and guests of our city, I recommend to visit here, and to pay tribute to the courage and Valor of our navigators, intrepid sailors and of course Captain-first Vitus Bering!
