  • As it does not perpetuate the memory in my opinion one of the most prominent Princes and magistrates, where only his fate have not experienced anywhere where Gregory Osipovich visited him, as we have noted only in 2014 year wise enough to put the monument, but better late than never. Implemented in my opinion everything very well, fully reflects the character of the Prince, and the horse as overzealous, fulfilled all the cool I like strolling along the promenade is always there to stop-this is our story!
