Monument to the Decembrists at the execution site

Obelisk na meste kazni dekabristov

1975. In 1826 five rebels who were protesting against the monarchy were executed in this place (historians could not find the exact place of execution for a long time). A 9-meter obelisk is made of pink granite holding a medallion with the portraits of Decembrists cast of bronze. Every year memorial events are held at the obelisk.
