The history of the Azov Flotilla, formed in 1768, has many glorious pages. During the Prussian-Turkish war of 1768-1774, it was led by one of the greatest Russian admirals Alex Senyavin. During the Civil War, the Azov fleet was involved in the fight against the White Guard and German connections. During the Great Patriotic War , the Don detachment sailors of the Azov flotilla under the command of Caesar Kunikov, constrained the superior forces of the enemy when they tried to capture the Taganrog harbor.

A combat torpedo boat on the pedestal, the monument to the Azov flotilla sailors commemorated this feat and is quite popular among the residents of Azov, of all generations and ages.
