City Hunter: Romantic Moscow Monuments
October 19, 2011 22:29


Love Tree near "Frunzenskaya" metro station

If you would like to discover Moscow, which is not described in guidebooks, you should have a look on its romantic monuments, dedicated to all enamoured. It will be a great experience, showing the beautiful sides and touching atmosphere of the city. 

Love Tree
This symbol of love is located in the Trubetskie's park near the “Frunzenskaya” metro station. It was made by the sculptor Grigory Pototsky, who for a long time has been dreaming to present Moscow such a gift. 
The monument includes two figures – a man and a woman – merged into one and forming a tree. It is really interesting to examine it, because the crown contains many little components. Try to find a little angel between the branches!

A Monument to All Lovers
The monument was installed by radio station “Silver rain” in 2006. It is situated in the Hermitage Garden – a pretty spot in the heart of Moscow and a perfect place for a date. Here you can find a Big Silver Heart with cylindrical bells inside the construction. They are ringing with each breath of wind and create a very romantic atmosphere. Loving couples should pass through the Heart and necessarily make a wish. 
In addition, every year, on the 14th of February, the “Silver rain” radio station organizes a funny competition for all who are in love – a mass kiss near the monumet.
You can easily get there from “Tverskaya”, “Pushkinskaya” or “Chekhovskaya” metro stations.

The Bench of Conciliation
This symbolic place near the Luzhkov bridge (“Tretyakovskaya” metro station) is created for squabbling lovers, who can make peace sitting here together. The semicircular shape of the bench makes people to roll to each other, not letting to sit apart. 
By the way, this bridge is also very famous for wedding trees with key locks on them.

The Bench of Love and Fidelity
Another bench for lovers was installed in Kuzminki park on the Day of St. Peter and Fevronia of Murom (8 July), when Russian celebrates Family, Love and Fidelity holiday. 
To create the bench an old French gun has been used. The gun was involved in 1812 war and was presented by a private collector who wished to remain anonymous.
Unfortunately, for some strange reasons the bench is now standing without wings and nimbuses.

Enamoured Snails
This landmark has appeared in Kurkino district in 2006. Although it is not dedicated to people, it symbolizes a wonderful sense of love. The monument has been made by the sculptor Philipp Rukavishnikov.
