The spot Monument to Friendship stands on is the place of former Ufa Kremlin, a fortress built in the 16th century. This reinforcement was a symbol of Russia's presence in the area. Nowadays the monument is an excellent place for taking pictures and observing the fascinating scenery of Belaya river. There is a legend, that if one 'squeezes' a hand of one of the figures of the bas-relief, a secret way will open to Sergei Aksakov House and Museum situated nearby via secret underground tunnel.
