VISIT OF THE MONUMENT TO QUEEN LOUISE IN SOVETSK

2015-05-22
On 18th of May 2015 the 5th meeting of the Lithuania-Russia 2014-2020 Programming Committee took place in Sovetsk, Kaliningrad oblast. Among participants of the meeting were representatives of the Lithuanian and Russian authorities and of the European Commission. Before starting the meeting they visited the Sovetsk central park where the monument of Queen Louise of Prussia was installed last summer. 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 reconstruction of the sculpture became possible thanks to the Project "Creation of Tourist Route from the Tilsit Peace Treaty of 1807 to Tauroggen Convention of 1812" which was implemented under the Lithuania-Poland-Russia ENPI CBC Programme 2007-2013. Immediately upon its installment the monument became a popular place of visit for the locals including newlyweds who visit it to left flowers.
