  • Unremarkable monument, only what he is known that earlier stood opposite Moskovsky railway station.

  • About the famous monument to Alexander Third in St. Petersburg since its establishment there were lots of jokes and anecdotes, very, on the one hand, ridiculous monument, and, on the other hand, here it is, all the power of the King-peacekeeper in izvaânii. Originally the monument was erected on the current uprising square, where now his place is Stella-Obelisk to the hero city Leningrad. " A monument now stands in front of the entrance of the marble palace. In principle, it fits into the ensemble of the Palace, but the first impression-monument here closely. He's very big and massive. It is difficult to judge its artistic component, but the King on horseback depicted something, somehow awkward and rather invokes a smile than aesthetic admiration. However, this attraction is so famous and so different stylistically from all monuments to the rulers of Russia, that look at it stands.

  • Unlike many pompous sculptures of tsars, the monument looks simple and rough. Surprisingly, it was created during the reign of the Romanov Dynasty. But that is exactly what the author saw the reign of Alexander III-validity, strength and calmness. There is a certain appeal in this image, just pass by impossible, you will obojdëte a sculpture around, paying attention to every detail. Very good that this work survived to our days.
