Monument to Anton Chekhov - ZvenigorodThe monument to the famous Russian writer Anton Pavlovich Chekhov in Zvenigorod it is bronze sculptural composition which shows us the writer while he is sitting on the bench. It seems like he has walked in the park and after that sat on the bench under the trees to take a rest. There is a little dog and faithful friend of the writer sitting next to him.

Anton Pavlovich put his hands on the back of the bench and put his left leg over the right leg. His figure shows us slackness and on the face is playing light smile. Probably he took a rest after hard work with one of his immortal novel.
