New Cultural Commons update!RUSSIAN BELL ARRIVES TO STEVENS POINT
Stevens Point Mayor Mike Wiza and former Mayor of Rostov Veliky, Russia, Konstantin Shevkopylas have collaborated to commission this bell to be installed in the gardens of the new Cultural Commons. The bell was designed and cast near Rostov. It was shipped from Russia and has now arrived in Stevens Point, weighing in at about 700 lbs!

The two cities have been sister cities since 1983, and the bell celebrates the work of many individuals in both communities to bring peace through understanding and friendship. Rostov Veliky’s central plaza or kremlin contains a bell tower from the 17th century. Its bells are among the largest and most famous in Russia, each having its own name. The largest bell weighs 71,000 lbs. and is named Sysoy to honor the city's founding father.
