  Monument to Peter the Great
by eranda

Peter the Great's enthusiasm and the founder of the St. Petersburg and motivated at least in part by his hatred for Moscow.

This wonderful monument was created by artist Tsereteli The idea for this monument was envisaged by Mayor of the Moscow city The monument has courted widespread disagreement.

The monument itself is 165 feet high, attributing a clamorous Peter the Great standing atop a frigate in full sail and flaunt a golden scroll.
