I am not sure what man has the most monuments erected to him, but after Vladimir Lenin it is probably Vladimir Vysotsky (25 January 1938 – 25 July 1980) – Soviet Russian bard, poet, song writer, film and theater actor. Vladimir Vysotsky monuments can be found worldwide – mostly in Russia and Ukraine, as well as in Poland, the USA, Bulgaria, Belarus, etc. His name was given to parks, cultural centers, museums, memorials, streets and squares, and even an impressive skyscraper in Yekaterinburg, Russia was named after him. Following the results of opinion poll conducted in 2010, Vysotsky took second place in the list of “heroes of the XX century” after Yuri Gagarin. The survey, conducted by the Public Opinion Foundation in mid-July 2011, showed that, despite the decline of interest in the works of Vladimir Vysotsky, the absolute majority (98%) of Russians know the name “Vladimir Vysotsky” and 70% responded that his songs are pleasant, and consider his creativity important phenomenon of the XX century Russian culture.
