Laying Flowers in front of the Road of Courage Monument


On January 27, 2016, on the Day of the Complete Lifting of the Siege of Leningrad formal laying of flowers in front of the Road of Courage Monument took place in Lisy Nos.


The Road of Courage Monument, performed upon the project of the sculptor Victor Novikov, was opened on the initiative of Viacheslav Zarenkov in May 2015, on the eve of the 70th Anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.

The Monument is dedicated to the Minor Road of Life and the exploit of the citizens of Leningrad, Lisy Nos, Gorskaya, Kronstadt, and Oranienbaum.

The Minor Road of Life is the whole system of roads functioning the same way as the Road of Life coming across the frozen Lake Ladoga, which operated from November 1941 to the very liberation of Leningrad on January 27, 1944.
