Barclay Square
[Text in Estonian]

At the beginning of the 19th century a promenade was here behind
the medieval town wall. in 1846 I. Demut-Malinovski designed the
bronze monument to General Field Marshall M.A. Barclay de Tolly,
who had attained fame in the Napoleonic Wars. De Tolly's officers
collected money to erect the monument. A. Shtshedrin is
responsible for the architectural part of it. This neoclassical
monument was unveiled in 1849. The square was originally paved
with cobblestones and surrounded by buildings on all sides. It was
later re-designed to become a park.

Annotation

The architect of the monument is Apollon Feodosievich Shchedrin.
