Posted on: December 6, 2011

Gun (cannon) on Primorskiy Bouleavrd, on Dumskaya square, opposite Odessa City Hall is the monument, devoted to bombardment of Odessa city by the Englsih-French fleet during the Crimean war.

 

The gun was  removed from damaged and sunk French frigate “Tiger”. In 1904, in honour of the 50 anniversary of reflection of an attack of Englsih-French fleet to Odessa, a gun was established on a pedestal near to the Odessa municipal hall and A.S.Pushkin’s monument.

French frigate “Tiger” was one of the most powerful and the most modern ships of that time. During Crimean War it was left by Alliance to block Odessa harbor from the side of Arcadia area. The frigate was destroyed by bombs of Russian battery.
