  • The sculpture of "deer", that once upon a time worth in Smolensk on Blone became one of the attractions of the city. And already it's hard to imagine that simply "Deer" in Smolensk will not. Here appoint bye, willingly "ride" kids, and that is what we did in childhood, but to this day tourists want to be sure to take pictures of the sights. Where does this sculpture appeared in Smolensk? Go back into the history of more than a hundred years ago ... Kaiser Wilhelm II of the German Empire was very fond of hunting. He particularly liked to hunt deer, which was engaged in his hunting estate that Rominten in East Prussia. In 1909 the traditional Jäger Horn blew over 16-m deer killed by his Majesty. Hunters so perfect antlers and Wilhelm commanded immortalize their best trophy. In 1910 year sculptor Richard Frise produced bronze statue of the deer in one and a half times the normal size. The statue was installed in Romintene near the chapel of St. Hubert, the patron saint of hunters, whose image is historically associated with deer. Another legend associates the Smolensk deer named rejhsmarshala Hering — there is an opinion that his addiction to the expropriation of art took kajzerovskogo deer at his residence Karinhalle in Brandenburg. Be that as it may, after the war, Kaiser Wilhelm II deer one day found himself in Smolensk with the inspiring inscription on its side: "Smolensk children warriors guards rifle Division. The statue was installed in the Park, and eventually the Blone deer became one of the most famous statues of the city.

  • At first glance, the sculpture as a sculpture, nothing special. Walking through the Park, we would have passed if not hospitable locals, walking in the Park, told the backstory setup in this park trophy monument. As well as focused on "an interesting place", polished to a shine. Locals say "good luck", and there already believe or disbelieve-you decide.

  • One of the attractions of the city. Do not pass by. In summer you can take a walk through the garden. In the winter we were limited to a visit to deer.
