Photo and description
The monument dedicated to Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin in Podgorica can be called one of the symbols of kinship between two close-minded Slavic peoples. Since ancient times, the friendship between Russia and Montenegro has been known, which makes the memorial composition dedicated to the great Russian poet special for both countries. This monument not only adorns Podgorica, but also strengthens the historical and cultural relations between Montenegro and Russia.
It is known that Peter II Njegos, during the writer's life, called Pushkin nothing more than "a happy poet of a great people" after the death of the creator, the Montenegrin ruler dedicated the poem "To the Ashes of A. Pushkin."
The architect of the monument to Pushkin is M. Corsi. The sculptor Alexander Taratynov, who completed this work, is also the author of a commemorative composition, dedicated to another famous Russian poet - Vladimir Vysotsky. The construction of the monument was financed by the Moscow government.
The opening of the monument took place in 2002. Compositionally, he is not only Pushkin, but also his wife Natalia Goncharova, who sits on a bench and, presumably, enjoys poems that Alexander Sergeevich reads to her. Perhaps she is listening to the very same poem - "Bonaparte and the Montenegrins", an excerpt from which is carved on a stone slab near the sculptural composition:
"Montenegrins? What is?
