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.

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.

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

This monument is right outside the main entrance to the Kremlin. Marshal Zhukov, one of the most famous Russian soldiers in history, on horseback. Hard to miss. Worth a photograph or two from various angles.

You can't miss him, his statue rides a horse against the backdrop of red walls of the Red Square. It's large and impressive statue. Take a picture or two.
