Chekhov Monument, Tomsk

(4.5/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Laugh at one of the nation's celebrated playwrights at Chekhov Monument. The monument depicts Chekhov as he looks toward the site of his favorite restaurant in the town, but the perspective is that of a drunk on the pavement, so his feet appear unnaturally large. The statue was designed to mock the author after he derided the locals in his travel notes, calling the men drunks and the women ugly. The monument is on the bank of the river near the central town square, so relax on the benches nearby and take in the view over the river. Put Chekhov Monument at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tomsk travel itinerary maker.
