Monument to the Destroyer Steriegushchy

The Steriegushchy Destroyer was a ship of the Imperial fleet. Involved in the conflict that opposed Russia to Japan, it sunk in 1904 while facing four enemy destroyers. Among the crew only four could be saved. This monument commemorates this tragic episode of the Russian-Japanese conflict and the bravery of the marines. It was erected in 1911 in front of Alexei Osinin, one of the rare survivors, and Nicolas II. It was designed by Alexander von Hohen and sculptor Konstantin Izenberg.
