The 835 year old Kolomna, a town situated at the border of Moscow and Ryazan Regions, is rich in historical and cultural monuments, both ancient and modern. A great number of them are located in the Kremlin or near it. Every year they are visited by thousands of tourists from all over Russia.
One of the monuments, despite being comparatively modern, has become very popular with citizens and visitors of Kolomna. This is a monument to Dmitry Donskoy.
This monument appeared at the foot of the Kremlin wall at a solemn ceremony in May 2007. The authors of this monument - architect Sharov and sculptor Rukavishnikov - depicted the Blessed Russian Prince proudly sitting on a powerful horse and peering intently into the camp of the enemy. It is a reminder of the glorious victory of the Russian army over the hordes of the Tatars in the famous battle of Kulikovo. The total height of this work of art is 12 meters.
In fact it is not by chance that the monument to Dmitry Donskoy appeared in Kolomna at last. In the far 1380 Kolomna became the place where Dmitry Donskoy gathered the Russian warriors and took them to Kulikovo Field to fight against the enemies. The Russian army won the battle and the Grand Prince became a welcome visitor in Kolomna. He proved that only when united the country was undefeated. His name has been remembered by the town residents and all Russian people through centuries.
Nowadays it seems very symbolic: Prince Dmitry Donskoy who protected Russia in the 14th century appeared in Kolomna again, in the image of a warrior – to protect our town from evil and troubles.
