Onego is a gift from the Leningrad Region to Petrozavodsk in honor of the 300th anniversary of the city. Allegorically depicts the birth of a new outpost of Russia - the warrior descends from boat to shore, where a new city will be founded.

Performance characteristics: Height with a pedestal of 11.5 m, height of the figure of a warrior 7.5 m.

The rotunda is located on the left side of the embankment, if you look at Lake Onega. For the citizens of Petrozavodsk, this is a meeting place for lovers, and in the summer - parties for roller skaters and skaters.

Sculpture Fishermen

The monument to S. M. Kirov (also Manizer) was opened on December 12, 1936 on the square of the same name. During the war, dismantled by the Finns, according to some data was found and installed in the second half of the 40s in the city of Medvezhegorsk. Re-cast and installed in 1945 .

Behind Kirov is the Musical Theater (post-war, built in 1955 according to the design of architect Savva Brodsky) with a pediment decorated with the Friendship sculptural group (10 figurines symbolize the "indestructible friendship of the peoples of the Karelian-Finnish SSR and fraternal cooperation with the great Russian people, spiritual forces of a simple Soviet person, the desire of the Soviet people to give all their strength to the further strengthening of the wealth and power of our Motherland ”).

Gull in flight and Meteor to Kizhi. Yes, they are the cheapest to go to Kizhi from Petrozavodsk.

Petrozavodsk turned out to be very rich in different nishtyaki, and the St. Petersburg was not in Petrozavodsk - a looser.
