The monument to St. Peter and St. Fevronia near the Kursk Registry Office was opened on July 8, 2015, also known as the Day of Family, Love and Fidelity. The love story of Peter and Fevronia is a historical fact.
The boyars of Murom were against this humiliating marriage between Prince and a peasant girl. Peter and Fevronia were forced to leave the city, but when Murom had fallen into decay the boyars apologized and asked Prince and Princess to come back.
The author of the monument is Svyatoslav Tretyakov. His project was considered the best at the creative contest. He admitted that the monument was developed a very long time because of the peculiarity of the location and public interest.
