  • I can't recommend specifically go to this column (5 points). And make a detour from the route, too (4 points). And I go almost every week by the Alexander column on Palace Square, so of course, the objective of such monuments as the connoisseur I call it difficult. But there's a lot to see here. Monument to proportionate, column slender, is made of bronze, inside is filled with sand, crowned double-headed, it looks like a gilded, Eagle with spread wings, which sits on a conditional celestial sphere, after seeing that, I realized that it is understood only when writing reviews. On the one hand the basement a bronze bas relief in the form of a hyped scroll with the inscription "1829 Built year Destroyed 1931 year Re-established 2005 year". In fact, in the entire history of the inscriptions of the monument. On the other hand, the same kind of Bas-relief with the words: "Jaroslavcy Pavel Demidov. In the square stands a little to the side of the central corridor. Old new year's Eve square was very nicely decorated. This is not a column set in square and square columns, have smashed with another patron and tools. Vahromeeva. Now the square is named after standing it monument Demidova. Pavel Grigoryevich Demidov, at its own expense in the year 1805 created the first higher educational institution in Yaroslavl, which later grew into the University of Yaroslavl, at the end of the last century which received his name. Demidova monument was established on voluntary donations. Yes, but was restored at the expense of the city budget, do not know whether this is correct. Information about that instead of the Demidov pillar was erected a monument to the Bolsheviks, I did not see.
