In the center of St. Petersburg there will be a monument to smelt

In St. Petersburg there are many historical monuments dedicated to great people and events. But there is a number of small unusual monuments in the Northern capital that are familiar and dear to the heart of every Petersburger - Chizhik-pyzhik, Hare by the Hare Island, Cat of Vasilisa. Soon their list will replenish another, dedicated to smelt.

Such a proposal came from the sculptor Vladimir Petrovichev, and the chief architect of the Northern capital Alexander Petrov was offered to realize it. So far, the exact place has not been approved, but there are already proposals to establish it with the cruiser Aurora or the Admiralty.
