Birobidzhan is the capital of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, a small city in the Far East, the population is only 70,000. Such a strange name - along the Bira and Bidzhan rivers, flowing parallel to each other and bordering the lands supposed to be settled by Jews since 1928.

The sculptural composition “Pigeons” is eight meters high, weighing two hundred tons. It depicts a cedar, a globe and two birds, as a symbol of Russian-Chinese friendship.

It was installed on Yichun Square in 2017 (as part of twinning relations between Birobidzhan and the Chinese city of Yichun).

Embankment of the Bira River
The embankment of the Bira River is great! Not all Russian cities have well-equipped embankments. Here and granite fences, but with wrought iron gratings. Two rotundas, benches, flower beds. Along the sidewalk stands are set describing the history of the city.

Granite colonnade and sculpture "Storks".

Embankment of the Bira River
The embankment of the Bira River is as if two-tiered, as in Tyumen. True, there is a big difference in height, and Birobidzhan is flat.

Birobidzhan is a very green city, and due to its low development, it feels like in a village. In fact, it is.
