Chekhov Monument to Appear in Capital City of Buryatia

A monument to the writer Anton Chekhov and a few architectural projects will appear in Ulan-Ude for the anniversary of the capital city of Buryatia.

      The 350th anniversary since the foundation of Ulan-Ude will be celebrated in 2016.

      The outstanding Russian writer, who was deeply impressed with Baikal, pointed out: “generally speaking, it is from Baikal that Siberian poetry starts; before Baikal there was prose”. He visited Ulan-Ude (named Verkhneudinsk in that period) in 1890 on his way to Sakhalin. Chekhov visited the Hodegetria Cathedral and sent a letter from the post office, the building of which has remained till date. Chekhov wrote only three words about the future capital city of Buryatia: “Verkhneudinsk is a pretty small town”.

      The city Mayor’s Office has also considered other projects: a monument to the Hero of the Soviet Union Vladimir Borsoyev to be set up in the street named after him, sculptures of Budamshu - the hero of Buryat national fairy tales, a fountain in front of Buryat Drama Theater, and some other projects.
