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.

  • Monument A.p.chekhov eyes drunk Tomic interest even from afar. Because it is located in a picturesque place, on the waterfront. Cartoon image of a writer like, apparently, many tourists and locals-nose shines from what rubbed by thousands of times for luck! In any weather, rain or snow, in summer heat, worth Anton Pavlovich in coat and hat, and, if called upon in one of the most favorite places in the city where you want to go back again and again, on the city's waterfront.

  • Chekhov monument is situated on the seafront opposite the restaurant "Slavonic Bazaar". Monument to interesting, primarily because of an unusual angle-watch should be from the bottom up, as the inscription on it. Secondly, Anton Pavlovich is depicted in an unflattering way. Supposedly, Tomsk so retaliated Chekhov for a hard-hitting review of their city, which left the writer. Interesting...

  • Didn't recognize Anton Palych's in such an unusual interpretation of the sculptor. But the place you have selected excellent-would like this stood day after day.
