The debate about the emergence of the square of a name of Gumilev in Kronstadt


On the official page Gumilevsky festival Facebook Olga Medved wrote that recently rampant debate about the name of the new Park in Kronstadt. It was suggested many options – from “Friendship” and “300 years of Kronshtadt” to “Happiness” and “Family welfare”. However, thanks to the participation of subscribers Gumilevsky companies during the counting of votes won variant of the “Square of a name of Gumilev”.

He immediately published a letter writer Daniel Orlov living in the city, all the different names of the Park and to protect Park named after Gumilev: “you Know about the name of “Friendship” and “trihalmie” of the city. But Gumilev and Kronstadt are inextricably linked. Nikolai Stepanovich was born here and he was shot as a participant (sympathized with) the “Kronstadt rebellion”. This is a great Russian poet, an iconic figure for the whole of Russian literature. It’s not about now. It’s about what makes us all Russian, that connects past and future. It is in this square will need to erect a monument to Gumilev. It is more important than abstract “friendship” and other “happiness” and “happiness”. The square “family welfare” or “square of fidelity” – a great title from the same series that friendship.”

Writer swept aside the proposal of the renaming of the square of Kirov, located near the spot where stood the house unpreserved Gumilev. Daniel Orlov writes: “the house of the family of ENU was not preserved, there is a five-storey building. Yes, there, near the Kirov square there is a monument to Kirov, and it should not be touched. To rename the Kirov square in square ENU – UNREAL! Can you imagine how many addresses and directories should be changed? Will be a huge scandal and why do Gumilev inherited Kirov? Now in the new Park was restored fortress wall, put new street lights, planted all sorts of trees, pine along with Eastern. This is a beautiful new Park, it just did. Send photos. I loved this Park on the Bay. Opposite the new house, near school and cadet school, military unit nearby. Cadets and students will be here to lead, about the poet Gumilev to tell. Naval parade of local this place will be watching because of Peter’s on the waterfront a crowd of tourists. It is very good! I’m happy that it happened. Thank you all for your support! God forbid, now put in this Park the monument to Nikolai Gumilev!”.
