Looks just like a monument, but it is interesting to hear the story around it. Established for the 1000ths birthday of Russia. On weekends once per day free of charge guided tour.

The monument is from 1862, and is dedicated to the great man of Russia until then (but not all of them). You will like this is you have a native guide or a good guidebook.
