An impressive monument dedicated by the Catherine the Great to Peter the Great situated in Senate Square. The statue of Peter sitting heroically on his horse is about 6m tall and it stands on a granite rock which is alleged to have weighed 1500 tonnes originally and took 400 men to move it manually. This is the largest stone ever moved by humans. It is about 7m tall. The statue was opened to the public in 1782. The face of Peter is modelled on his death mask and various portraits. There is a lovely eighteenth century legend that says that whilst the statue continues to stand enemy forces will not take the city. During the 900 day siege in WW2 the statue was covered and in spite of all the bombing and artillery the statue was virtually untouched. Leningrad as it was then named was never taken.

Monument to Peter I on Senate Square in St. Petersburg. The unveiling took place on August 18, 1782. The monument is made of bronze. The bronze horseman weighs eight tons and is five meters high. The most famous monument to Peter I. Also famous symbol and landmark in St. Petersburg. This statue is very impressive. One of the many picturesque parks nearby and locations of interest in St.Petersburg.

One of the main attractions of St. Petersburg, which one of the first comes to mind when mentioning this city thanks to the pen of Pushkin. The monument at center on Senate Square is no stranger to belle epoch dressed men and women offering to pose for a picture for €5.. The monument is striking in its power and grandeur. I recommend a visit, especially if this is your first time in town.
