Obelisk in Honor of the 300th Anniversary of the Romanovs Dynasty Restored

A restored obelisk in honor of the 300th anniversary of the House of Romanov has been unveiled in the Aleksandrovsky Garden near the Moscow Kremlin.

      The obelisk has been restored in its original form, just the way it was set up in the Aleksandrovsky Garden in 1914 to mark the 300th anniversary of the Romanovs’ dynasty. Details of the bas-relief and the corresponding inscription had to be recreated anew, because they had been destroyed in the Soviet era. Thus in a number of details the recreated obelisk is not completely copying the original. In particular, there are divergences in the writing of some letters, the fact that representatives of a number of public organizations paid attention even before the unveiling of the obelisk.

      Initially the obelisk was dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the House of Romanov, which has its 400 anniversary now, but in 1918th it was changed and moved to another place.
