“Yet another monument”

Monument to Waiting Woman
Reviewed 23 October 2017 via mobile

This one is further from the city than the Alyosha monument, but is possible to combine if you don't mind a bit of a walk. Minibus 18 seems to go here, but I'm not sure where the rest of the route goes. To get back I trekked back to the main road and took tram #4 into the city. The monument is nice enough but probably not worth the effort of trekking all the way there on a rainy day.

Nice monument with yet another stunning view over the Bay. Spent there some time time to enjoy the views and hearing stories from locals about the meaning of this monument. No one can do it better then people who live here.

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.
