Kronverksky prospect, Metro station: Gorky

The monument to the destroyer Steregushchy (by the sculptor K. V. Izenberg) was erected in 1911 in the park near the former Kamennoostrov-sky Prospect.
The memorial is dedicated to the heroic deed of two seamen of the destroyer Steregushchy during the Russo-Japanese War. Surrounded by the enemy, the Russian seamen preferred death to dishonorable surrender; descending into the hold, they scuttled the ship and perished together with it.
