Monument to Alexander Suvorov

Alexander Suvorov (1729-1800) is known for being involved in over sixty battles and winning them all. After the battle of Prague in 1794, Catherine the Great honored him with the title of Field Marshall, highest distinction in the Imperial army. This monument, built in his honor, is located on the square named after him. It was erected on the request of Paul I in 1801 after the Italian Campaign (1799-1800) where he distinguished himself. Designed by sculptor Mikhail Kozlovsky, Alexander Suvorov is depicted allegorically with the characteristics of Mars, roman god of war. The granite pedestal reads ”Italsky Prince, earl Suvorov-Riminsky” (”Italsky” meaning ”of Itlay” and ”Riminsky” - ”of Rome”).
