  • Well how not to visit the place, even on the banknote in 500 rubles. The monument was erected in 1914 year, Peter three times visited the Arkhangelsk in 1693, 1694 and 1702. The monument was cast in Paris, and the pedestal made the monks of Nikolsky monastery solovetsky monastery. In 1920 the monument was dropped with pedestal and lay on the shore until the year 1933, then hit the fonts Museum. Rebuilt in the year 1948.

  • The monument was erected in a small park on the banks of the Northern Dvina River in the year 1914. It's pretty well known for other places of installation (Moscow, St. Petersburg and TD) monument by sculptor Antokolskogo. The Russians he was familiar with his image on the 500-ruble banknote. The most popular chip in this place-to be photographed next to the monument, holding a 500 rubles!

Saint Petersburg awarded up two in 1909 (2003). near the Cathedral, Sampsonievskogo and in 1910 at Kirochnoj Street in the square in front of the regimental Hospital of the Preobrazhensky Regiment. And finally, Arkhangelsk, 1914 year. The most famous to date a copy of the sculpture was purchased for the occasion. Arkhangelsk Governor Ivan VASILEVICH Sosnowski in May 1909 year wrote urban head Jacob Lejcingeru: "now appears to be a rare occasion to purchase for the city of Arkhangelsk for relatively insignificant price superior bronze statue Emperor Peter I, a life-size model of the famous (now deceased) sculptor Antoko ...
