      Monument to the founder of the city was opened on 28 May 2011. The sculpture symbolizes the Cossack Horn, who came down from his horse and holding his bridle. Monument put on a huge monolith of iron ore, weighing 62 tons. The sculpture weighs three tons. She was designed by Ukrainian sculptor Alexander Vasyakin and cast in a private studio.

      It is worth noting that a plaster model of the monument was prepared in 1991 by the order of the then head of the city of Gregory Gutovsky, but did not have time to establish a monument to the change of mayor. As a result, about the monument was forgotten almost twenty years. The exhibition at the honor of the anniversary of Alexander Vasyakin project interested acting mayor Yuri Vilkul, he ordered to put a sculpture founder of Krivoy Rog.
