We stopped by the Blue Bridge, in the pillar of which Kronstadt tide gauge is installed. Nearby, there’s a tide gauge booth - a device which records the water level. There is also a monument to the fishes ;)

It is such a small fish with spines on the back. In general, it is not eaten. But this stickleback saved many lives during the siege. People made patties of it, cooked soup, so it was a delicacy at that period.

The monument to Lenin was erected to the 38th anniversary of the October Revolution in 1955. Originally it was in front of the administration, and in 2000 it was moved to this public garden.
