A dog peeing on the lamp-post. This amusing monument makes citizens of Vologda and tourists smile. In fact, it is an exact copy of the first street-lamp which was lighted on May 21, 1904 - over 100 hundred years ago. The monument with the dog was unveiled on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of street lighting installation in Vologda.
This place in the embankment right at the foot bridge (called Red Bridge) is the favorite place for pairs of sweethearts. People make wishes rubbing the dog nose.
These ten years have actually been very difficult for the iron animal.
