We stayed around the corner from this beautiful, powerful statue. I tried to walk past it either to or from our excursions, going through the quiet park that is so popular with locals. It was the last statue I saw before leaving St Petersburg. It is so easy to visit, just off Nevskiy Prospekt and opposite Eliseyev Emporium Coffee Shop.

The monument shows the Emperess surrounded by her ministers and noble. It is located in the little park - in front of the Alexandrinsky Theatre, between the National Library of Russia and the Anichkov palace. You may use the opportunity and have look at these places as well.

St Petersburg is very different to Moscow and to visit the park in a big city is always relaxing. The statue stands very much the focal point as she was certainly a very strong lady

the Old Lady still dominates the park where the monument is located and probably even the whole area there, including the men which are still at her feet

Located in a nice little park. It is worth a stop to see this monument to Catherine the Great. A peaceful place just to get away from the crowds.

The Monument to Catherine the Great is situated in the center of the heart of the city, in fact it IS the heart of the city. The part is a lovely place to sit and relax after a hard afternoon of sightseeing or on a cool evening. I visit it often, several times a month. The monument itself is grand... More
