Mikhaylovski Public Garden in Minsk is a popular holiday destination as for Minsk residents and also for guests of the city. Especially loved the park students and passengers of railway station (park is located close to it).
There are three peculiar sculptures in the park. They are worthy to describe them separately.
Sculpture "Minsk Lady" is the main photo-model of the park. In sculpture embodied the image of refined woman having relax on a bench in the shade of trees in a warm summer day. Sculpture is very poetic and very popular among tourists.
The sculpture "Girl with umbrella" is set in 2000 and it has very sad history. The original author's intention was to create an image of a girl in the rain waiting for a trolley bus, bus or tram. But the tragedy at the metro station Nemiga in 1999 changed the plan. As a result of the accident 53 people died, mostly young girls. Therefore, the image of a romantic girl has been changed and the sculpture became a kind of monument to the victims of tragedy.
Sculpture "Lights up" depicts a man in a cap, which reaches out as if intending to "shoot a cigarette."
