Description

On Leningradskaya Ulitsa we saw this unusually-shaped memorial surrounded by daisies and fragrant lilacs. The structure is concrete painted bright white, with steps up both sides to the top. We were told that it is styled after a ship's bridge, and I can certainly see the resemblance.

Erected in 1927, this was the first monument in the City of Murmansk, which was founded on October 4, 1916.

Murmansk had a stormy beginning. 1917 brought the Russian Revolution, and in 1918 to 1920, Murmansk was occupied by anti-Bolshevik intervention forces.

In years past the monument and the square around it were a popular gathering place for local folks. There were quite a few tourists with their cameras ready on this bright July day.

The 16 images of this panorama were captured with a Nikon D80 and stitched with Autopano Pro.
