  • The monument was not so famous, as monuments of other Russian samoderzhcam. But, in addition to the amazing history of creation, as well as the history of its existence, in my opinion objectively displays as the autocrat and Russia means that managed and that very organically associated with horses under the emperor. By the way, a horse that posed for sculpture, belong to Alexander the third, by the way, the Empress Dowager, in sculpture, recognized the very close similarity with Alexander. The same heavy and powerful. This allows you to dismiss the negative reviews of other relatives of the King. It is a pity that the pedestal on which stood before the sculpture, perished in perepjatijah 20 century. Now, the monument stands on a pedestal on which was placed before Leninsky armored car. It is a pity that he is unlikely to ever return kgda in original place before the Moscow station. During the war, the monument was hit by German shells, but turned out to be just as powerful as Russian Tsar Alexander Third, go around the monument and carefully look, no trace.

  • Enter the gate of the marble palace, and soon this acoulthandle III... I saw images of the world. It was old and tall buildings, the lovely flowers at the feet, such as create dignified. However, MA also jousting Aleksandr III., they don't, and I felt the loneliness somewhere.

  • Surprised by the amount of "excellent" ratings and positive feedback about the monument. This equestrian monument in the Bronze Horseman and horse monuments Clodt von Jürgensburg at first glance, to me, seems completely inappropriate. I, for example, no artistic merit in the monument is not noticed, since childhood I remember catch phrase on the chest, begemote and obormote and completely agrees with it. Heavy, though the upirajushhijsja horse, some movement there lurks only in tense neck muscles, and her mouth opened in a silent rzhanii. As if he doesn't want to carry a rider. There were statements that this image symbolizes Russia, pjatjashhujusja running Emperor-reactionary, one of the first on this suggested Repin. And the lack of underlying each horse tail makes her fifth point and the truth is similar to begemotju. Heavy, and were still seated rider, upertaja in the thigh with a square whose right hand fist further aggravates the General contour of the sculpture. Without imagination, insipid pedestal. But can be approached differently, remembering some interesting and sometimes amusing moments associated with the monument, and smile. What Russian by the name of the author of the sculpture Pavel Trubetskoy was actually Italian Paolo and born and deceased in Italy, which held in Russia just 7 years. That he was the natural child of Prince Pyotr Petrovich Trubetskoy and Americans, and for this the relationship alive wife Prince was not allowed back into Russia. And the fact that Paolo was self-taught, who are not either total, no special artistic education. By the way, in spite of this, some of his works seemed quite cute. Just strange that such a sculptor won in a contest on the author of the monument. Remember that some relatives of the emperor was considered a monument ...

  • Spomenik velikom ruskom pesniku Aleksandru Puškinu na Trgu umetnosti u Sanktpeterburgu posećuju mnogi ljubitelji književnosti i poznavaoci njegovih dela. Nas je pratila dosadna kiša i sama poseta je prošla u neveseloj atmosferi.
  • The great Pushkin statue, and, above all, the park that surrounds it. This is the authentic and literary heart of Petersburgo, a city that falls in love with, and which always becomes, to discover more and more things... because life emanates from every building, every channel, every square.
