I live in a military town Severomorsk. There are a lot of monuments here: the Cannon, the Rocket, the monuments to Lenin, Sasha Kovalev, Boris Safonov and other famous people. And I want to tell about the monument to Alesha.
During the Great Patriotic War the people of Severomorsk decided to create a monument in honour of their friends, who died in the war. Then people of Severomorsk began to collect money for the monument. There was an idea to build a monument-lighthouse pointing the way for ships in island Salniy. There was 5 million rubles for it but this money was spent on the construction of new houses in Severomorsk.
In the fifties the government of Severomorsk decided to build the monument in the capital of the Northern Fleet, in Severomorsk, where come all sailors, who serve their duty in the fleet. The opening of the monument was on the 10th of June, on this day was the fortieth anniversary of the fleet. This monument is officially named “The monument to heroes of Severomorsk defenders of Polar” but people call it Alesha. It is a sailor with a gun in his hands. Its height is 30 meters. There are heroes’ of Severomorsk names on the foundation of the monument.
It is still standing on the main square of my town and it is the main sight for tourists. On Victory day people always put flowers at the foot of Alesha in memory of dead sailors. I hope it will stand here for a long time and remind people about their ancestors, who protected my town in the war.
