The monument to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson was unveiled on April 27, 2007 during the celebration of the 120th anniversary of the publication of the first book by Arthur Conan Doyle about the famous detective "A Study in Crimson Tones" near the British Embassy on Smolenskaya Embankment.

The Moscow monument is the only composition in the world where the master of the deductive method Sherlock Holmes and his constant friend and assistant Dr. Watson appear before the public together.

The opening of the monument was attended by British Ambassador to Russia Anthony Brenton and People's Artist of Russia Vasily Livanov, who played the role of Sherlock Holmes in the famous Soviet television movie, and received the Order of the British Empire from the hands of Queen Elizabeth II for the best embodiment of the image of Sherlock Holmes in the history of world cinematography. And British critics called Livanov and Solomin the best Holmes and Watson pair in cinema. Read this article of Monument to Ho Chi Minh in Moscow.

Not having time to appear on a Moscow street, with the light hand of Vasily Livanov, the monument received its own legend: if you sit next to the doctor and hold on to his notebook, all problems and doubts will be resolved. But if you touch the pipe of the famous detective, your worries will noticeably increase.

Address: Moscow, st. m. Arbat, nab. Smolenskaya, 10
