The monument to Admiral Pavel Stepanovich Nakhimov (1802—1855) was opened in 1898. The authors of the monument are A. A. Bilderling and I. N. Schroeder. In 1928, the monument was dismantled; a monument to Lenin was erected instead on its place in 1932. In 1959, a reconstructed monument was reopened (the monument to Lenin was moved to another place). The authors of the new monument are N. V. Tomsky and A. V. Arefiyev. The reconstructed monument in general repeats the previous one.
