The monument to the hero of the Civil War — Sergei Lazo — is located on the intersection of the Lazo and Pyotr Velikiy streets. The formal opening took place on 12 of August 1945. L.M. Pisarevskiy took on the role of the sculptor.
There used to be the monument to one of the Vladivostok's founders — Admiral Zavoiko — since 1908 to the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. The postament had been standing empty since 30-ies of last century and then the monument to Sergei Lazo had been installed. Sergei Lazo was the hero of the Civil War, the Red Army Commanding Officer, outstanding combat and political leader, one of the Soviet headers in Siberia and Primorsky krai. He tragically died at the hands of the American and Japanese invaders in 1920. The bronze figure is casted at whole length and installed on the granite pedestal. The commander clenches his right hand into the fist. The forage cap is in his left hand.
The monument is located in the Vladivostok's historical centre that is why it is often visited by tourists. The magnificent panoramic view of the Korabelnaya embankment and Zolotoy Rog Bay opens from the streets on the intersection of which the monument is located. The Admiralskiy Square and the Triumphal Arch-the symbol of the throne on the Pacific seacoast that was demolished when the Bolsheviks rose to power and entirely restored in the early 2000s — are also located here.
