The Russian city of Tomsk is home to the smallest public monument in the world —a tiny bronze frog, sitting on top of a smooth rock. The sculpture is just 44 millimeters tall. The curious attraction, titled “the monument to the frog-traveler”, was installed in 2013 near the front entrance of a hotel. It’s creator, Oleg Kislitsky, wanted to create a monument dedicated to travelers and decided that the frog-traveler would be a fitting representation to his idea.

The story of the frog traveler —the one who goes flying with the storks hanging from a twig by his teeth, but couldn’t keep his mouth shut when people on the ground, seeing the unusual spectacle, began praising the storks instead, eventually leading to his death— is well known in Russia, having been penned by the famous Russian author Vsevolod Garshin.
