This monument commemorates the success of Karl XII at Narva in 1700 when the Russian forces that had been besieging Narva in the course of the Great Northern War were destroyed. This memorial was a gift from the Kingdom of Sweden to the City of Narva and the statue was a copy of the one that stood in front of the Royal Palace in Stockholm. The memorial was destroyed during the Second World War. The Swedish Lion was re-inaugurated on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the battle in 2000. From the memorial you will see a perfect “5-kroon” view of the two fortresses, which is depicted on the back of the 5-kroon note. The letters MDCC stand for 1700. And “Svesia memor” means “Sweden remembers”.
