Peoples` Friendship Monument

Peoples` Friendship Monument, Bishkek

The magnificent example of the monumental Soviet art and one of the symbols of the bygone era is the monument of Peoples' Friendship located on Prospect Chuy, near the Historical Museum. The monument was opened in 1974 in the honor of the 100th anniversary of the voluntary accession of Kyrgyzstan to Russia. Two tall pylons made of white marble are girded with expressive high relief with the figures personifying the Russian and Kyrgyz people connected by ties of unbreakable friendship.
