  • Can, of course, I subconsciously compare this convoy from Alexandria on Palace Square, so Peter and not impressed. But I would not advise going here especially to see this monument, which for me means score 5 points, or even making a detour from the route (4 points). And I always welcome the erection of new monuments and sculptures. And proportions of this seem to me quite harmonious. Sculpture is not devoid of speakers: Archangel relies on one leg, the second exhibited forward and bent at the knee, right arm with a sword, but not hanging, but forward, left energetically supports the cross. And extended slightly forward sword looks pretty aggressively. This is if you look from the side. The front picture is much statichnee because no foot movement, neither elation nor hands torchashhego sword. Architect s. Sukhorukov, sculptor b. Zelenko. A pedestal of red granite, the column reinforced concrete, the sculpture of bronze. At this place were buried by Russian soldiers who died defending Fort Alexandria, regarded as the center of Sochi during the Caucasian war. Another version, not my why monument is devoted exactly to Archangel Michael. Michael was considered the winner of the evil spirits, people believed that it is harmful spirits are sources of various diseases. And the City-Resort helps to cope with disease.
