  Statue of Catharina the Great
by filipdebont

When you walk along Nevskiy Prospekt you will pass the Ostrovski Square. This Ostrovski Square is designed by Carlo Rossi, one of Russia's most brilliant architects.

In front of the square there is a garden, and in the middle of this garden you can see a big statue of Catherina the Great. By the way this is the only statue in the city of Catharina the Great.

It was designed by Michail Mikesjin. The statue shows Catharina surrounded by states men and other important persons.

In the rear you can see the Aleksandrinski Theatre.
