Monument Tourist Spot
Built 400 years after Bashkiria's voluntary accession to Russia, the spire-shaped Friendship Monument (Monument Druzhby) represents the fraternal friendship of the two peoples. It dates to 1967 and sits on a hill that previously held the town's fortress and cathedral. This 35 m (115 ft) tall monument consists of mostly pink and gray granite. Several bas-reliefs at its base represent cooperation between the two nations in the fields of industry, science, and culture. Observe the female figures below it, which were modeled by two actual women from Russia and Bashkiria. This site received an upgrade in 2006, on the 450th anniversary of the accession.

  • Seems to be a point of interest, but to do nothing specifically here. Nothing interesting around create failed, and spend more 5 minutes just near the monument-has no meaning. Better go down to the waterfront and stroll, although there's now a vengeance is being reconstructed, so that make it too difficult)
