Monument to Cheburashka to Appear in Cheboksary

Monument to Cheburashka an internationally popular character of Edward Uspenskys fairy tale - will be set up in the capital of Chuvash Republic.
      Administration of Cheboksary has decided to announce a competition for the best sketch of the monument to Cheburashka, emphasizing that the project should represent a combined thematic composition executed in the form of an integral massive bronze bench "Cheburashka", i.e. a sculpture that can be actively used for photosessions.
      The city authorities are also going to immortalize the memory of Cheburashka in the name of a street.
      The monument to Cheburashka planned to be set up in Cheboksary, will not be the only known monument of the kind in Russia. Thus, statues of Cheburashka and Gena the Crocodile have been established in Khabarovsk and Kremenchug, and a whole sculptural composition depicting Cheburashka, Gena and Shapoklyak appeared in Ramenskoye town near Moscow in 2007.
