Peter The Great Monument, Moscow

(1.1/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • during the cruise on Radisson ships, we are right next door this very imposing monument a must see

  • There are different ways to treat works Tsereteli, me personally, to his admirers don't exactly classify. On the other hand, this monument has already become part of the culture and history of the country. A little strange, disproportionate, but still beautiful and carrying value.
