The steps are a wonderful architectural design so standing at the top or bottom they seem to be one long progression of steps. Eisenstein used them quite dramatically in his episodic movie "The Battleship Potemkin". Despite the fact that the incident he portrayed there took place at a nearby but less scenic location, they are worth going to see and enjoy as a unique landmark. Oh, and try to see the movie if you haven't already!
