This is a simple statue in a beautiful location in the north of the city, from where splendid views of Murmansk and Kola Bay can be enjoyed. The statue, erected in 2012, depicts a young woman waiting for her husband to come home from the sea, a wait which often used to be an anxious one due to the turbulent and unpredictable Arctic waters nearby. There are flower beds surrounding the statue and, on a nice day, this is a pleasant place to linger for a while. It is best reached by taking the number 18 bus, which terminates here. There are love locks attached to the railings overlooking the bay, and young couples sit on the benches here and gaze out across the city and the bay below.

a monument to all women who wait for their men to come back from the sea. As most of the men i the town work at sea it is a very touching monument. it is supposed to be the first thing ships see when reaching the harbour. so we expected it to be much bigger, but it is just a little bit bigger than height of an average woman.

A beautiful shapely monument. When you see the list of accidents at sea (close to the Kursk Memorial then you realize how many women (and kids) there are waiting for their beloved ones. Visit this place during our city excursion,

The woman waiting for his husband at sea. The railings in front of the monument are covered with locks put on by lovers.
