The statue of Victory

Perhaps the most representative monument of the socialist period is the statue of Victory.

The Victory Monument is made in the style of socialist realism and glorifies the antifascist struggle of the Romanian people. It was unveiled in the year 1968, and her creator was Boris Caragea.

In the history of Romanian art, the name of the sculptor Boris Caragea represents controversy, glory, destruction, denial, then returning to a completely different register. An artist of extremes. Born in Balchik, where he earned his adolescence as a barge, Caragea became the favorite artist of the Royal House, and later became the official sculptor of the communist regime.

The Dobrogean Boris Caragea was born on January 24, 1906, in Balchik (Quadrilater), growing on the terraces of the Black Sea, among the archeological vestiges from Cap Caliacra. Son of the sea, Boris earned a living as a boatman for a time, but life had great plans for him, according to his impressive physique. He received numerous orders, performing important works of art, including: "Pain", "Discus Thrower" - made in 1958 and located on the seafront in Constanta
