Площадь Павших борцов (до 8 февраля 1920 — Александровская площадь[34]) один из немногих памятников города, связанных не только с Великой Отечественной войной. Центральная площадь города. Получила своё название в честь всех защитников города погибших в Гражданской войне. Над братской могилой, расположенной непосредственно на площади, воздвигнут обелиск в их честь.
