Monument to Saint Andrew

The monument to Saint Andrew was erected on October 8th, 2000 to celebrate the 2000 years of Christianity and three-hundred years of the Order of Saint Andrew in Russia. The monument depicts a tired traveler taking support on his cane just before he saw the miraculous city. According to the legend, the apostle was able to get around on the water as well as on the ground. The sculptor managed to give a light figure to the stone just as the apostle was described, which is why as one looks at the blue stone 4 meters-high statue it seems that it is floating over its pedestal.
