    Beautiful but inaccessible

    This is a lovely detailed monument but cannot be accessed by pedestrians. If you want to see it close up there is a model in the northern entrance of the cultural center opposite.

    Nice monument

    It is located in the middle of a traffic circle, so it’s hard to get close to it. However, it is a nice looking monument. Would not go out of my way to see this.There’s a separate Square next to it.
