Monument to A.V. Suvorov

The hallmark of Tiraspol is the monument to Alexander Suvorov with which the grateful descendants immortalized the memory of their city founder.

The monument was inaugurated over 40 years ago, on November 23, 1979, on the eve of great commander’s birthday celebration. The authors of the 9-meter bronze statue were brothers Vladimir and Valentin Artamonov, while the monument design was performed by architects L. Druzhinin and Yu. Chistyakov.

Tiraspol Suvorov is recognized as one of the best monuments to the Generalissimo in the USSR. It was awarded the gold medal named after the sculptor Yevgeny Vuchetich (the author of the famous sculpture “The Motherland Calls!” on Mamaev Kurgan in Volgograd), as well as the medal of the USSR Academy of Arts.
