  Alexander Column
by Sharrie

With just my eyes, I couldn't see much.
But with technology (a 10X optical zoom), here's what you get to see at the top of this 47.5 m height MONUMENT TO ALEXANDER I - THE ALEXANDER COLUMN --- An angel holding a cross!

Built in 1830 - 34.
Architect: Auguste de Montferrand.
