HUGE STATUE AT OPENING OF RED SQUARE

This statue of Zhukov on horseback is vast in size and is situated just at the entrance to one end of Red Square. It is a very intricate piece of work and worth seeing.

It is right next to the Red Square and Alexandrovsky Park which is a great location. Also, there are good places to eat, sit and listen to live music close by!

I don't think this monument is of great historical value. Firstly, it's quite modern (was erected in 1995 for the anniversary of WW2) and secondly, the proportions of figures both Zhukov and the horse are wrong. The monument was created according to the photo and if you have seen it you will certainly notice this. Russian people connected with horses... More

And impressive statue of a very decorated soldier on a horse. An interesting gesture of his right hand and most astonishing, is that the horse is trampling over a Nazi Eagle and a swastika. Sobering stuff and considering the price that Russia paid during World War Two, this monument is fairly appropriate.

When you walking in the Red Square , you can't miss the statue of Marshal Zhukov. If you don't know who is , just google it and you will appreciate the statue and you will understand the position of the statue and the gesture of the Marshal.

With its great location and amazing details, this monument is fitting homage to the most famous and decorated general of the Soviet Union. Take a moment to fully enjoy all the details of this great monument.

Here, in the front of the State Historical Museum, on the opposite side of the Red Square, that is, on the Manezhnaya Ploshchad, stands a gorgeous monument to the Marshal of the Soviet Union, G.K.Zhukov. We saw many monuments in Moscow, during our stay and this one is of the newer built. It was erected on May 8, 1995, in... More

This is a relatively new monument in Moscow.It would probably not have been erected in the time of the USSR as the politburo took a dim view of individuals stealing their limelight. Georgi Zhukov was a remarkable soldier even by world war 2 standards..He oversaw the defence of Leningrad before being sent to Moscow to stop the city being captured... More

For anyone who has or is visiting Moscow you will be aware of the amount of statues there are everywhere, this one is my favourite and definitely worth checking out!

We took a few minutes to behold this monument with our guide. I was surprised to learn that under the horse's hooves were Nazi flags, swastika emblem and all, and what looked like a snake along with them. This modern era take on "St. George slaying the dragon" was spectacular and I took as many pictures as I could from... More
