Ploshchad Kallnina (Kalinin Square); Monument to M. I. Kalinin.
Many pages of M. I. Kalinin’s revolutionary biography are connected with the Vyborg District. On November 20, 1955, a monument to M. I. Kalinin was inaugurated in one of the central squares of the city. It is designed by the sculptor M. G. Ma-nizer.
Kalinin Square is one of the centres of the new construction sites. The blocks of new dwelling houses, as well as the building which houses the Gigant (Giant) cinema have changed the former workers’ suburb beyond recognition. The reconstruction of the square was carried out in accordance with the design submitted by the architect A. K- Barutchev.
