Monument to the Cossacks of Orenburg

The monument to the Cossacks of Orenburg was erected in 2007 so as to commemorate the local Cossacks for their participation in the expansion of the Russian State. The Cossacks of Orenburg guarded the borders of Russia in older times and they defended the country in the years of the Second World War. The statue depicts a Cossack on a horse ready to go and fight. This 12 meters high sculpture weighing over 150 tones was casted in Moscow and designed by Aleksei Nikolaev.
