Monument Faleev

Mykolaiv, Ukraine
4.9 / 9
The Monument Faleev is a stunning tribute to Mikhail Faleev, the founder of the city of Nikolaev. This monument commemorates Faleev's exploration of the area in 1788 and his decision to establish a shipyard at the merging point of two rivers. The city grew rapidly as a result, eventually being named Nikolaev in 1789. Faleev's influence extended beyond the shipyard, as he also directed the transformation of the Bug estuary into a deep channel. The monument itself is a bronze statue of Faleev holding a scroll, earning it the nickname "Citizen with a cigarette" among the locals. An identical gypsum statue of Faleev can be found in the City Council building. The monument offers a great view of the river and is surrounded by cafes and amenities, making it a wonderful place to visit. Additionally, there is a belief among local witches that the cloak on the Faleev monument and the veil on a nearby bride sculpture represent Faleev's reluctance to settle down. Overall, the Monument Faleev is an impressive and significant landmark in Nikolaev.
