past and present
Some time ago in the fort Kronshtadt near StPetersburg it was erected the monument in memory of the first cruise of russian mariners headed by admiral Putiatin to Japan in 1852-1855. This trip was of great importance, Emperor Nicolas I sanctioned it. It were established diplomatic relations between our countries. In 1855 russian frigate "Diana" sunk in Japan port because of tsunami(!) Russian mariners were saved by japaneses. By common efforts of japaneses and russian mariners it was built another ship, and the russian expedition came back to Russia. You can easily read both texts on the monument - russian or japanese :) and the new life reflecting in it.
