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.

  • "Tomsk-city skuchnejshij ... and the people here are preskuchnejshie. The town drunk, beautiful women, not powerlessness Asian ... Tomsk copper penny isn't worth it ", recorded in his diaries Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, who in the year 1830 in Houston on the way to Sakhalin. However, at all times, bad weather, bad moods and bad service can distort our impression from any location. But not anywhere, and only Houston, residents could give such an adequate answer criticism! Charming monument, created by talented Leonty Usovym; This business card in Tomsk. The author's humor is reflected in the fact that Chekhov depicts a barefooted: on the urban legend of Czechs in the Tomsk mud lost kaloshu. A monument too in not random location and next to the restaurant "Slavonic Bazaar". Otkushavshij there Anton Pavlovich was satisfied: "Lunch here is delicious, unlike women, stiff to the touch" (again refer to urban legend. ".

  • Funny monument. "Through the eyes of a drunken man lying in the gutter." When you look at it through the eyes of this man, you understand every detail of the monument. Recommend to see in good weather.
