  • An interesting monument, which is located next to the station. Upon arrival in Moscow about it necessarily all photographed. Very good idea to have next to stations not only monuments but locomotives and the creators of the railways.

  • The monument is located in front of the Kazan station, not from the area of three stations. Interesting and informative to know who stood at the origins of the railway business in Russia. Desired monument and the right place!
