The monument to Dmitry Donskoy is situated in front of the Rostov Cathedral of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary (1885) with the bell tower; this is the architectural monument of the 19th century, constructed after the project of the famous Russian architect K.A. Ton. The architect became famous due to such projects as the Christ the Savior Temple, the Big Kremlin Palace, the Armory in Moscow and as the founder of the Russian-Byzantine style in the religious architecture. The snow-white cathedral in Rostov, being a 10 times reduced and simplified copy of the Christ the Savior Temple, is decorated with massive golden onion-domes; it is considered the center of the city architectural ensemble.
