  • Lived not far from space-walked from the VDNKh and accidentally saw. Monument stands at the focus building hotel "Cosmos". against the backdrop of the hotel is lost somehow. It seemed to me not a good place. well Yes architects know better.

  • It's worth digging on the Internet before you write a review. Why a monument here? Very simple hotel Space built by the French firm, on a draft French architects for the Olympics 1980. Then, in 1990, the area near the hotel, in connection with the approaching centenary of the great Frenchman, was given its name-de Gaulle square. So where is was in Moscow in 2005 year set a monument to hero of France? Of course on the area of its name, the building was designed and built by his compatriots. At first glance, the monument looks not very good, not comfortable that Lee! Especially from afar and in profile. But if you stand up to the monument, approximately 70-50 metres away, then everything magically change. And facilitates this and symmetry of the building behind him, and green areas around, and even a fountain with pigeons! Good location, nice monument and memory eternal General, who believed the friendship with the USSR master part of the policy of France.

  • Weird to see this statue here, but there it is
  • A monument for general Charles de Gaulle in Moscow? Yes, it can.
  • The statue of General Charles de Gaulle was inaugurated in 09/05/2015 by Presidents Vladimir Putin and Jacques Chirac. "Today, the 60 anniversary of the victory over Nazism, we inaugurated in Moscow a monument to the glorious son of the French people, a great statesman of the 20th century and a good friend of our country: Charles de Gaulle," said Putin in a solemn act. The statue, which reproduces the typical image of general De Gaulle in your military uniform, was created and donated to the Russian capital by the famous Georgian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli, President of the Academy of fine arts of Russia. Of eight meters high and placed on a pedestal of other ten metres, the figure of the hero of the liberation of France was installed in front of the known Cosmos hotel, built for the Moscow Olympics of 1980 in the North of the Russian capital. Highlighted by the semicircle of the façade of the hotel Crystal, the enormous statue of general De Gaulle is separated by the Muscovite peace Boulevard of another celebrated vertical construction, the monument to the conquest of space.
