Sovetskaya Square to get a new name Slavy Square

Mogilev regional executive committee initiated renaming Sovetskaya Square into Slavy Square (Square of Fame). June 22 the resolution to turn to Mogilev’s citizens with this initiative was adopted at the round table session with participation of representatives of the City Deputies’ Council, executive authorities, mass media, the public.

The need to rename Sovetskaya Square is closely connected with its reconstruction which started some years ago. Over these years the square has got a restored architecture monument of the 17th century. Design and estimate papers to hold capital repairs of the square and beautify the architecture monument Zamkovaya Gora – Gorky Park have been worked out. This historical part of the city will get a new concept.

According to Fyodor Mikheenko, this new concept will not only include the memory of the Soviet past of our history. The square will immortalize the names of war and labour heroes, literature figures, Olympic champions, arts figures, scientists and statesmen who brought fame to Mogilev. The new concept will reflect the most significant labour, culture and sports events of Mogilev region.
