Chekhov Monument, Tomsk

4.5
#1 of 203 in Things to do in Tomsk
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.

  • Very original monument Ap Covers. It is located on the embankment of the river Tom. In addition to enough funny design it has magical properties. If you rub his nose or umbrella, you can make a wish.
