“Wow!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Near Leninsky Prospekt metro station, this magnificent tall statue can be found, dominating all around it. Very impressive. Made from titanium. Worth the trip just to get good photograph and see a statue dedicated to one of the most famous names in world history

“Interesting”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Seeing the monument itself is nice, not thrilling though. The best thing is that not far awar from there in the Academy of Sciences. On top of that is the Sky Lounge, which is in reality a high-end restaurant. With excellent but expensive food, not to mention a view of all of Moscow, it is worth going to.

“It's OK”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

But there is really nothing around. And on itself the monument doesn't worth the time spent to get there.
