Parks and Squares, Saint Petersburg: 77 reviews and 146 photos
This is a statue of Peter the Great posing as a conquering emporer. The Russian writer Pushkin helped to further immortalize this statue by creating a story about it. He named this the "Bronze Horseman", and it stuck. There is a legend that this city will never be taken as long as the monument stands. It was well protected during World War II as the Germans shelled the city. Many Russian brides and grooms come here to have their photo taken. You will find the monument near St. Isaacs. It faces the Neva River.
