Nice statue to a great actor
Sep. 2020
His name will hardly say anything to a foreigner but practically every Russian knows him for the roles he played in immensely popular Soviet films. Yes, he was born in this town though at that time its name was Terijoki (communists renamed it in 1948). In Finnish it meant "a tar river", in Russian it does "a town of green hills".
This small monument faces a mammoth statue of Vladimir Lenin across the street. People's darling Vitsin welcomes him by lifting his hat. Communist leader threatens him with his fist in return (my interpretation). But who is scared of the guy today?

The monument was put to the very popular Soviet comedian Vitsin. He played a lot of very bright roles in movies. He died in Moscow, and was born in Zelenogorsk. Local people are proud of their countryman.
