The Suvorov Monument

No viruses

A bronze bust of Suvorov opens the architectural ensemble of Suvorov Street, the only pedestrian street in the city.

History of the monument

The monument was made by Russian sculptor Rukavishnikov in 1904 based on the death mask of Suvorov and is one of the best portrait images of the commander. The bust was gifted to the city from the employees of Leningrad Museum in March 1950 in connection with the 150th anniversary of the great commander’s death.

The monument is installed at 2 Suvorov Street. There is a bas-relief “Suvorov’s Soldiers in Battle” made by Kherson sculptor I. Belokur near the house in which the great commander lived (1 Suvorov Street). The bas-relief was made in 1974. Initially, the bust of Suvorov and the  bas-relief were installed on the site of a house destroyed during the Second World War and made up the public garden “Suvorov Corner.”

Today, youth gathers at the monument to play guitar and exhibits as well as street music concerts are held there.

This place is a popular stop on many city excursions, some of which begin here.
