“Majestic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

The monument itself is a true work of art, for me the surrounding park land ,with views of St Isaac's Cathedral and the Neva added to the time we spent walking in this area.

“Great photo spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Big statue right in the street. Great photo opportunity. Watch out for traffic while you try to maneuver for a good shot.

“The original strong man of Russia.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Peter the Great, sits triumphant upon his horse opposite St Isaacs Cathedral and by the side of the Neva River.

The Bronze horseman atop a block of granite. What sort of images does this monument conjure up in the minds of visitors?

An impressive monument to Russia's original strong man!

“A Famous Statue of Peter the Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Located opposite St Isaac's Cathedral by the Neva river is the imposing statue of the Bronze Horseman. You can easily view the statue if you intend to go to St Isaac's or walk round the Admiralty gardens.
Depending on what time of the year you visit bring a jacket as the wind blows straight from the Neva river into the park area which contains the Bronze horseman. You will recognise the statue as it is used as a logo representing the spirit of the city.
In any other city you would be really impressed by this statue, but this is St Petersburg and there are so many grand statues here it blends in with so many others. That said you should see.
