Chekhov Monument, Tomsk
(4.5/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • Great place, peculiar vision of Anton Pavlovich:) be sure to read the inscription on the Memorial and everyone will understand.

  • During the time students were often on the waterfront. There is a tradition-to rub the nose of the monument to Anton Chekhov and that is what we did))) and that's worth it this is a gleaming brass, though only in one place brass body-nose) and a wonderful place for the monument-a huge area of Waterfront! I advise you to visit. Without options.

  • Over Anton Pavlovich fun. Not in vain, said tour guide that is Chekhov's revenge for his review about Tomsk. His razuli and made huge feet.
