Demidovsky Pillar

Demidov pillar was erected in 1829 in honor of the founder of the first educational institution in the city, manufacturer Paul G. Demidova. The monument is a marble column on a granite pedestal, crowned with a double-headed eagle. The original monument stood for nearly a century and was demolished in 1931. The inauguration of the new pillar, built at the image of the former one, was held on December 9, 2005.
