The monument created by Maria Tikhonova in honor of the 700th Anniversary from the birth of the one of the most popular saints in Russia, the Venerable Sergius of Radonezh (1314-1392) was installed here on June 25, 2014. St. Sergius founded in 14th century the top rank monastery in the country located just about 70 km north-east from Moscow that often called in present time as “Russian Jerusalem”.
