OPENING OF THE MONUMENT OF QUEEN LOUISE IN SOVETSK

2014-07-17
On the 6th of July 2014 in Sovetsk (Kaliningrad region) festive events initiated to celebrate 207th anniversary of signing of the Tilsit Pease Treaty took place.

The celebration was organized as part of the activities being implemented in the framework of the Project LPR1/010/185 "Creation of Tourist Route from the Tilsit Peace Treaty of 1807 to Tauroggen Convention of 1812" under  Lithuania-Poland-Russia ENPI CBC Programme 2007-2013.
The event included concerts of a string ensemble and an orchestra of the Baltic Fleet, theatrical performance of signing of the Tilsit Peace Treaty and the opening ceremony of the monument of Queen Louise of Prussia.
 
Opening of the monument became a major event in this celebration. The sculpture duplicates the one that was installed in Sovietsk over a century ago. It was restored by masters of the St. Petersburg restoration workshop. It’s made of the same material as the original one - Carrara marble. The best ancient sculptures are made of this marble (for example, "David" by Michelangelo). The monument was restored by means of the Project as well.
