A grotesque entity, but every nation has its monuments in bad taste. If you enjoy this monstrosity, then you will probably also enjoy the horrendous monuments to Queen Victoria's reign in prominent places in London.

Given to the people of Norgorov as a gift from the Russian President on their millennium birthday after being founded in 864, this sculpture depicts famous Russian rulers, musicians and artists and a great image of the world.

I did not realize the strong ties Russia had with the Byzantine empire. Western historians claim it is dead and does not exist. Visiting the The Monument to the Millennium of Russia, proved that Byzantium is alive and well. The Monument was built in 1862 to commemorate 1,000 years of Russian history. I was impressed with the large Byzantine crosses... More

The monument is from 1862, and is dedicated to the great man of Russia until then (but not all of them). You will like this is you have a native guide or a good guidebook.

The monument is built in the bell shape with the sculptures of people who played the most important role in russian history untill the end of the 19-th century. One may see how Alexander Nevski, Peter the greate, St.Vladimir and other remarkable russian people looked like. The monument is very symbolic.

To properly tell the story of Russia available from this structure, you really need an experienced guide. We had one who was excellent and it took him a good 45 minutes to explain everything covered here. It really is amazing how such a complicated history can be contained in one monument.
