Monument to St. Mikhail of Tver to Appear in Tver

A monument to the Great Prince Mikhail Yaroslavich (1271-1318) of Tver and Vladimir will be set up in Tver by the Days of Slavic Written Language and Culture on 24-26 May 2008.
      The sculpture featuring Prince Mikhail on horseback was created by sculptor Andrei Kovalchuk from Moscow. The monument will be set up in the very centre of the city, on Soviet Square, where the building of the regional administration stands.
      St. Mikhail of Tver is an all-Russian saint who is also considered to be the heavenly patron of the city of Tver. Historians recognize him as an outstanding state leader of Medieval Rus, commander and Tver lands protector who was martyred in the Mongol Horde.
