Monument to Vitus Bering

The monument to Vitus Bering, founder of the city, was made between 1823 and 1826 in Saint Petersbourg. The monument is made of cut stone with a cast iron tablet that reads “to the founder of Petropavlovsk in 1740, navigator Bering”. Initially the monument was settled near the governor’s house but then it was moved several times and is now located near the harbor from which the navigator had started his expedition to America.
