Soviet Monument

Soviet Monument (March 2009)

Where Ploschad Svyatitelya Nikolaya (St Nicholas' Square) joins Ulitsa Dzerzhinskaya there is an excellent example of a Soviet monument depicting a silver hammer, sickle and star. This is just one example of the many reminders of Russia's communist past that even 20 years after the fall of the USSR remain all over the country.
