Sculpture of Moydodyr

…Suddenly, A lame and bowlegged Sink runs out from my mother's room. He shakes his head… The sculpture is located in “Sokolniki” Park. Not far from the mini-zoo and the children's playground there is a monument to the famous character of Chukovsky’s fairy-tale. The Washbasin the Great is really impressive, “the leader of all sinks” looks exactly as we imagined in our childhood. The author of the monument is a sculptor from St. Petersburg Marchel Korober.


I am the Great Wash-Basin,
I am the Famous Moydodyr,
I am the Headmaster of sponges and basins
And the Commander of all sinks!

  • Where: Park "Sokolniki" at the intersection of Mitkovsky passage and Pesochnaya alley (Metro station Sokolniki)
