Konstantin Batyushkov was a Russian poet who was born and died in Vologda. In recognition of this connection, in 1987, on the 200th anniversary of the poet's birth, a statue of Batyushkov was unveiled between Kremlyovskaya Ploschad and Vologda. The monument depicts Batyushkov standing next to a horse, which actually rather steals some of the attention from the poet. Nevertheless the statue has now become one of the symbols of the city and is usually surrounding by people having their picture taken. Also nearby is a statue of a muse.
