Alexander I Monument to Become Symbol of Orenburg

A memorial obelisk to Emperor Alexander I will be restored in Orenburg.

      The monument was set up in memory of the release from military billeting in 1822 in the Aleksandrovskaya Square (now it is the Lenin Square in Sovetskaya St.).

      It represented a stele made of white stone and topped with a gold sphere. Later the stele was moved to the city boulevard on the embankment of the Ural River. In the Soviet period the obelisk was demolished, and replaced with a monument to Valery Tchkalov in 1953.

      The restored obelisk will become almost an exact copy of the destroyed one. The monument is reproduced according to preserved photos and drawings.

      The monument unveiling ceremony will take place on August 31.
