The Rimsky-Korsakov monument is a bronze statue of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), the Russian composer, teacher, conductor, public figure, music critic, and member of the "Mighty Handful".[1]

The monument was erected in 1952 in Saint Petersburg (then known as Leningrad) in Theater Square in front of the N. A. Rimsky-Korsakov Saint Petersburg State Conservatory. Rimsky-Korsakov taught there for almost forty years.

The monument was created by sculptors V. Bogolyubov and V. Ingal, and architect M. Shepilevsky. The statue has been listed as a cultural monument.[2]
