Monument in honor of the 200 anniversary of the Kuban Cossack army, 1897 (it is restored in 1999), the architect V.A.Filippov. It's on crossing of street Red and Budyonny's street.
At this monument truly surprising destiny. Creation of a memorable obelisk has been dated for celebrating of the two-hundredth anniversary of the Kuban Cossack army solemnly noted in October, 1896.
Actually Kuban Cossack army has been created in 1860 by merge of the Black Sea and Linear Cossack armies, . About these events, and also about heroic service of the Kuban Cossacks in glory of Russia narrate four memorial plates of an obelisk.
In 20th years of the XX-th century from obelisk top the overgilded two-headed eagle ? a symbol of imperial Russia has disappeared, and in 30th years the monument was and is at all disassembled. So blatant injustice has been corrected at the end of the century. During celebrating трехсотлетнего anniversary of the Kuban Cossack army the new bookmark of a monument has taken place, and in two years it has appeared before inhabitants of Kuban in the primordial form.
Address: crossing of street Red and Budyonny's street
