The monument is one of the most popular sights to see in Tver and it is one of the favourite places of the citizens of Tver.
A. Nikitin was a merchant from Tver and the first Europen who had reached India in the 15th century.
It is overlooking the Volga river and there is a great view of the City Garden and the two bridges over the Volga.
It's also a good place to walk in the park along the river.

onument of the famous sculptor. Piece of art. No politics, just a story. This is a monument to the first European who visited India. And this is not Vasco da Gama.

It's a monument, with the head of a horse on the front of a boat. Unique, though not necessarily a must see.

The monument overlooks the Volga, and is located within a quiet park, across from a Russian orthodox church. A nice monument, and on a sunny day, it would be an excellent object to take a picture with.

It's one of quite a few local attractions, so, if you happen to find yourself in Tver, make at least a picture with the merchant's boat nose.

Interesting architectural solution. In perfect harmony with the surrounding urban landscape. Also looks good on the background of the Volga. It is better to visit in the summer, walk through the bridges in winter, is dirty, and transport is not rare, but quite uncomfortable for visitors.
