Ss Peter and Fevronia of Murom Monument

Ss Peter and Fevronia of Murom are most often identified as Prince Davyd Yurievich of Murom and his wife, who took the names of Peter (Pyotr) and Fevronia upon becoming a monk and nun respectively. Shortly afterwards both died on the same day in 1228. They have since become the Russian patron saints of marriage and family. This monument to them was unveiled in 2009 as part of a nation-wide project to develop the sanctity of marriage and the family in Russia.
