Fodor's Expert Review Leninskaya Street

Petropavlovsk Memorial/Monument/Tomb

If you walk down Leninskaya Street, you'll find two monuments commemorating historical occurrences: one is dedicated to the return of the Kurile Islands to Russia by the Japanese; and the other honors Captain Charles Clerke (1741–79), a leader in three James Cook expeditions, who is buried here. There are also statues paying homage to the most prolific explorers of the area, Vitus Bering (1681–1741) and Jean-François Galaup de La Pérouse (1741–88).
