Monument to Admiral Nakhimov. Sevastopol
Outstanding naval commander, inspirational leader and patriot, Admiral Pavel Nakhimov (1802-1855) is one of Sevastopol's and Russian greatest heroes. The monument is located at the very heart of Sevastopol on square named after him. Best known as one of the Russian leaders of the Crimean war, Pavel Nakhimov had unanimous admiration of the sailors who were under his command. Modest in everyday life and brave in fighting, he was a model for them. Fatally wounded two months before the end of the siege, he was buried in the Burial Vault of the Admirals on the central hill of Sevastopol next to his fellow-fighters admirals Kornilov, Istomin and to their preceptor Mikhail Lasarev. During the Crimean War Nakhimov distinguished himself by annihilating the Ottoman (Turkish) fleet at Sinope in 1853. The monument created by skulptor Н. V., Tomskiy and architect A. V. Arefjev was solemnly opened on November 5, 1959.
