Since about 2010, various genre sculptures have been installed in different cities of Russia, for example, as on pedestrian streets Bolshaya Pokrovskaya in Nizhny Novgorod or Kirov street in Chelyabinsk. In Voronezh, mainly sculptures from the times of the USSR.

The monument to Peter I
The monument to Peter I is one of the symbols of Voronezh. The original monument was opened on August 30 1860 (sculptor A. E. Schwartz).
During the occupation of Voronezh by German troops, the sculpture was taken out for melting.
January 10 1956 the monument was reopened. The granite pedestal is original, and the sculpture was restored according to the surviving materials, but with changes (sculptor Nikolai Pavlovich Gavrilov and Gabriel Alexandrovich Schultz). The emperor in the form of the Preobrazhensky regiment leans on an anchor (stop-anchor), with his hand points to Azov, where, by the order of the autocrat, the fleet built in Voronezh was transferred. Voronezh is the cradle of the Russian fleet!
