One of the most infamous monuments in Moscow. It was also called the Colossus of Rhodes in Moscow and Gulliver in Moscow. It is tall - almost a hundred meters - and is installed on an artificial reinforced concrete island. I can not even imagine...More

Walking along the river you can spot this long before you actually get there. It is a massive statue. It is well worth a look at while walking along the embankment.
