On the eve of the 610th anniversary of the city of Bendery, the opening of the park named after the Grand Duke, the commander, the holy Russian Orthodox Church Alexander Nevsky was held. The park is located on the territory of the Bendery fortress. Work on the reconstruction of the historic military memorial complex began last year.

Today, the territory from the Tsaregrad gates to the citadel has been transformed into a cultural and historical zone, a park has been planted, an exhibition pavilion has been opened, and a children's playground is located.

A festive liturgy took place in the Church of Alexander Nevsky. Pridnestroviian state choir sang for the leadership of the republic, guests of the city and parishioners.
The guests from Russia shared the joy of the celebration of Pridnestrovians. State Duma Deputy Yevgeny Primakov called the historic military memorial complex a place that will attract people who value their history, culture and love their land as a magnet.
Actors in costumes of historical figures, flower girls with baskets of roses, alleys with “living sculptures”. The organizers of the event tried to recreate the historical era. The company of the guard of honor presented a festive parade ground.
