Fundraising for Monument to Tragically Lost Swans in Nizhny Novgorod

The monument will immortalize love and devotion of two dead swans, namely Gvidon and Tsarevna.

      The monument will be set up in the central avenue of the Nizhny Novgorod Zoo, where their feelings lived for eight years until the birds’ untimely death.

      The tragedy happened in Nizhny Novgorod several months ago. The female swan named Tsarevna trustingly ate bread given by visitors. A needle somehow happened to be in one of the bread pieces. Two weeks later she perished tortured by vehement pains.

      After her death the male swan Gvidon ceased contacting other birds in the zoo. The zoo workers hoped that the bird community would help the swan overcome his tragic grief but he stopped eating. Gvidon was placed in an isolated hospital, but the attempts to save him failed: he could not live on without his sweetheart.

      Now the staff of the Nizhny Novgorod Zoo appeal to the locals and tourists for financial support of the monument to the ever faithful swan couple.
