Aleksandr Nevsky Monument

Aleksandr Nevsky Monument (September 2010)

In 2006 Patriarch Alexius II of the Russian Orthodox Church gave his blessing to name Aleksandr Nevsky, a mediaeval Russian prince and saint, as the protector of the city of Volgograd. This decision was then commemorated in 2007 with the erection of a statue of the saintly prince himself on the city's main square. Aleksandr is depicted at full height in armour and flying a banner.
