 Monuments to Gogol 

 
 

     The monuments to Gogol in Moscow are two sculptural monument, established in Moscow in honor of Nikolay Gogol. The first was created to the centenary of the writer's birth in 1909 and was located at the end of Pretchistensky (now Gogol) boulevard. The second monument appeared in 1952, the year of the centenary of Gogol’s death, at the place of the first monument (which eventually was moved to the courtyard of the memorial house of Gogol in Nikitsky Boulevard). Thus, there is a unique situation in Moscow: on both sides of Arbat Square, on a relatively short distance from each other (less than four hundred meters) there are two monuments to the same person.
