Russian Muzhik Monument

Russian Muzhik Monument (September 2012)

Among the gardens known as Sochi Park off Kronshtadtskaya Ploschad stands a nice and unusual monument dedicated to the Russian muzhik - a traditional Russian peasant man. The monument was unveiled in 2007 and depicts a muzhik standing with a plough which represents the peasants' hard-work. Around the muzhik's neck hangs a crucifix symbolising the peasant's strong Orthodox faith, while at his feet are political banners.
