    Not only the scientist and inventor, but also an outstanding engineer, which brought a lot of benefit to the development of the oil industry in Russia. And the placement of the monument near the Office of "Lukoil" think is natural. It is a pity that, like all the monuments in Moscow, this too is unpresentable appearance due to feathered friends! Gadstvo, all about ... ... and rather zagadili! ((((((

    On Sretensky Boulevard at the address d. 2 (as suggest maps) stands on a pedestal monument to an outstanding Soviet and Russian engineer Vladimir Grigorievich Shuhovu Designer, author of many engineering (oil industry) and construction, including for industrial and artistic exhibitions, constructions (radiobashnja at Shabolovka). The sculpture is quite high and watch her near the falls from the bottom up, apparently the authors thus wished to stress the importance of the individual engineer. The pedestal is replete with different sculptural "characters" associated directly with the work of Shukhov. Well, behind such a majestic sculpture, intricate benches in the spirit of engineering and a walkway on which to stroll.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
