The Crimean War Statues Stand Tall in Regent Street!

History is fascinating, especially in Regent Street; the Crimean War statues stand tall and silent, but they highlight the significance of how history has changed the way we see places and notable figures.

Despite obtaining promises of support from Britain & France, the Ottoman Empire declared war on Russia in October 1853.

The Ottoman Empire fought the strong defensive campaign led by Omar Pasha.

In doing so, they stopped the Russian advance at Silistra, which, in the present day, is a town located in Northeastern Bulgaria.

What’s fascinating about the history of the Crimean War is that these statues ascertain the events of the war, which ran from 1853 to 1856, while giving a complete perspective of the conflicts and resolutions made before, during and after the end of the Crimean War.

The Crimean War marked a turning point for Russia as the war essentially drained the treasury.

It undermined their influence in Europe and, as a result, weakened the Imperial Russian Army.

I’m fascinated by history because I’m keen to learn more about how history shapes the world.

These statues highlight the critical importance of history and why we need to educate ourselves on the accounts of past times.
