The Monument to Firefighters and Lifeguards, Irkutsk, Russia.
Jun 2019 • Solo
The Monument to Firefighters and Lifeguards, here in Irkutsk, Russia, is located just down the street from the Emergency Management Bureau for the Irkutsk area. The Emergency Management Bureau is the building with a fire truck mounted on a pedestal in front of the building.

One easy way to get here is to ride a Number 3 or 80 or 480 bus coming up Lenin Street. When it makes its left turn in front of the fountain at Trud Stadium onto Dzerzhinskogo Street, get off immediately. It is a very short walk up the street to the site of this monument.

The statue is very well done honoring those who serve in this very challenging occupation. I am happy that I visited it after living here in Irkutsk for 8 months or so. Better late that never.

The monument to fire fighters and lifeguards is located on Dzerzhinskogo Street to the rear of the Vampilov Childrens Theatre. It is in a small park that can not be seen from Lenin Street. The easiest way to reach this area is by bus 40,42 or 43 which stop at the Philharmonic Bus Stop, a 2 minute walk from the monument. Trolleybus 3,4,7 or 8 stop at the Trud Stadium, which requires crossing Lenin Street, and then a short walk to the monument.The monument consists of the sculpture of a fire fighter and lifeguard who stand with a hose at their feet. The firefighter has a rolled hose in his left hand and the lifeguard has a bag slung over his shoulder.The park is small, and has a few benches, where you can sit and enjoy the sculpture.

The fire station is a short walk north on Dzerzhinskogo Street. In front of the station is a 1988 model fire truck monument, which was installed in 2013. A storyboard is to the right of the path leading to the monument, and gives the history of The Irkutsk fire department. Unfortunately this is only in Russian script. We had visited a similar monument in Krasnoyarsk, and a monument to firefighters in WW2 in Omsk. Other nearby attractions, include the Lenin statue and sundial clock on Lenin Street. If you head in an easterly direction on Lenin Street, the Babr sculpture and Holy Cross Church will be seen.
