Nardony Bulvar, which translates as People's Boulevard, is Belgorod's main pedestrian street and one of its prettiest being decorated with unusual statues. At its beginning is a memorial stone with an engraving dedicated to the Belgorod Regiment which participated in the Battle of Poltava in 1709. The "My First Teacher" Monument pays homage to favourite teachers. The "Shuttle Merchants" Monument depicts an entrepreneurial pair dragging behind them two trollies filled with goods which they brought for cheaper in one region to sell for a profit in another. A giant sundial, one of the symbols of the city, can be found on the intersection of Narodny Bulvar and Ulitsa 50 Let Belgorodskoy Oblasti. The boulevard also has busts of General Lebedev, the revolutionary-philosopher Nikolai Chernyshevsky and Andrei Popov, a tankman who died heroically during the first liberation of the city in 1943.
