Monument to Count N. N. Muravyev-Amursky

The majestic monument to N.N. Muravyev-Amursky was created by the outstanding Russian sculptor A.M. Opekushin, the author of the famous monument to Pushkin in Moscow. Nikolai Muravyev-Amursky, statesman and diplomat, was general-governor of the Eastern Siberia. He was the one who defined the place for the city. In the 1920s the Soviet government took the decision to dismantle and put the figure of the governor in the museum. But the museum did not manage to conserve the magnificent work of the Russian sculptor. More than 60 years later it was decided to restore the monument after a model that had been fortuitously preserved in the museum. On May 30, 1992, on the anniversary of the Khabarovsk city, the bronze governor returned to his pedestal at the bank of Amur. The monument is depicted on the Russian five-thousand-ruble banknote.
