"Peter the great statue" Peter the Great Statue Tip by heplion

Peter the Great Statue, Moscow: 8 reviews and 12 photos

 
 

Again, this is another 'you can't miss it' landmark. It is a new monument commisioned by the mayor of Moscow. After it was first built some people tried to blow it up. I am not sure exactly why, it is not a crown glory of artistic beauty, but it isn't THAT bad! You can see it from just about anywhere along the Moscow river. For a close up look go to Sculpture park.
