Peter the Great matured in the battles for this city, and Azov could not get by without having a monument to the great emperor. It was opened in 1996, to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Russian fleet. A group of sculptors led by Oleg Komov and Andrei Kovalchuk portrayed Peter the General, still young, but already extremely motivated and persistent.
