The first Russian monument to catfish is opened in Nizhny Novgorod
Fishing plays a very important role for all citizens of Somovka village. Moreover it made it possible for fishermen to supply with fish not only Nizhny Novgorod region, but also Moscow. Special warehouses still can be found there. They were used many years ago. The information is provided by the official website of the village.

The celebration included different excursions all over the village, performance of local creative teams. Visitors were able to try different dishes as well as do the shopping on local fish market. Smoked catfish was the main delicacy of the evening.

By the way, the first monument to catfish was built in Somovka village. It is the first monument all over Russia and the second monument on the world. At the same time there are lots of monuments to other types of fish in Russia. For example, if you visit Astrakhan, you will be able to see a monument to a Gold Fish. The same monuments are also built in Moscow and Kemerovo.

The author of the monument to catfish is a famous sculptor Vladimir Sidorov. Citizens of Nizhny Novgorod also know him due to his monument to goat that is located on Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street.

This monument in Somovka village is the first step to creation of monument that will be totally dedicated to catfish. It will be opened within a year with support and help of Nizhny Novgorod region Governor Valery Shantsev.
