Originality of thinking was appreciated at all times. Even in ancient times, rulers are seekers of those people who might surprise them. Whether acting or good building and unique skills. Times have changed, but we still love to look at those things that look unusual. After all, we are so accustomed to everyday objects in life.
The same applies to monuments. They surround us, often we do not notice them. There are, and there are, even without knowing who is depicted on them. But there are such sculptures that millions of people come to them. That such an exhibit is a monument to cucumber.
He stands in the suburban town. And this is not just sarcasm. The fact is that the city of Lukhovitsy is a whole storehouse of healthy vegetables. He is one of the leaders among the suppliers of cucumbers to the capital market.
Residents appreciate the place in which they live, as the city has a very mild climate. It also allows you to grow crops of industrial scale. At the same time, residents of the city grow cucumbers on their own. And they feed the capital with their own hands. Various farms are not doing this here.
Of course, when for a person, something or someone of great importance in life, I want to do nicely. And why should cucumber not be erected a monument, if it is indeed the basis of the life of the whole city and subsequently the region.
Of course, trade makes up a large part of the budget. In 2007, the residents decided to thank their breadwinner, immortalizing him at the entrance to the city. Now this place has become famous throughout the country.
Anyone who drives through the city cannot simply stop. This only confirms the above, that there are a lot of monuments, but only a few are remembered for a lifetime. The monument to the cucumber in Lukhovitsy is a bright representative.
