Aleksandr Nevsky Monument (June 2009)

Grand Prince Aleksandr Nevsky, who is one of Russia's most celebrated heroes and recognised as a saint by the Russian Orthodox Church, was born in Pereslavl-Zalessky in 1220. He was also most likely baptised in the city's Transfiguration of the Saviour Cathedral and in commemoration of this link, a bust of him son was unveiled outside in 1958. The features of Nevsky are based on the actor Nikolai Cherkasov who played Nevsky in Sergey Eyzenshtein's famous film.
