Peter The Great Monument, Moscow
(1.1/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Rising above the Moskva River in the center the city, Peter The Great Monument pays homage to one of Russia's most legendary figures. Standing at a height of 98 m (322 ft), the statue generated controversy not just for its design but for the fact that Peter himself had a well-documented hatred of Moscow. Judge for yourself by stopping at the towering metal statue, just a stone's throw from the Kremlin. Look up to see an oversized Peter astride a mound of sailing ships, clutching a golden scroll in his hand--a tribute to his foundation and development of the Russian Navy. Bring your camera to capture this prominent component of the skyline.

  • We were looking for a pier to embark on a boat by the river Moscow, and tired from all the walking, we face with this huge statue, of a character within a vessel. I was quite curious and the next day the guide who took us to the Kremlin, we clarified that that statue would be at first a reference to the discovery of America and the character would be Christopher Columbus. For some reason, that even she knew need, was turned into a tribute to Peter the great. Reported that the Muscovites do not appreciate this statue. It's really not the most beautiful. But it is colossal.

  • One of the best works of the author. Impressive, ambitiously and majestically, as it should be, everything associated with the era of Peter the great.
