This monument has a very long history. The committee for its construction was created in 1982, but only in 1989 an architectural competition was announced. The first two rounds of this competition did not produce results, and only on the third attempt was the project of the sculptor J. Ya. Neumann and the architect F. A. Gepner selected. Initially, the monument to Zhukov was to be erected on Stachek Square, where it was laid in 1990, but it turned out that a heating main runs in this place, and the monument cannot be erected.
Then the chief architect of Victory Park V. D. Kirkhglani proposed to erect a monument in its current place.
According to the 1945 project, a high-rise dominant was planned here - a monument to I.V. Stalin, from the 1960s the idea of a statue of V.I. Lenin was developed.
As a result, the monument to G. K. Zhukov, Marshal of Victory, 9 meters high (with a pedestal) became such a dominant feature. It was opened on May 7, 1995.
