Sochi's oldest monument
Although it’s somewhat small, the Anchor and Cannon Monument stands out as it’s officially recognized as being the oldest monument in the city, having been erected way back in 1913.
The cannon part of the monument is an original 19th Century armament, which was used during the bitter Russian-Ottoman war that took place between 1828 and 1829. The anchor meanwhile, dates from the 18th Century, and together with its cannon serves as a symbol of Russia’s victory in that war.
