Owner description: A gallant and heroic Peter the Great atop a horse is depicted in this striking statue on Decembrist (Senate) Square commissioned by Catherine the Great to honor her predecessor.
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The granite base for this statue was supposedly the actual outcropping Peter used to stand on across the Gulf of Finland to watch his new capital city rising, and was chiseled out and transported to its present location. The move allegedly took a special barge and almost a year's work. And how many people knew or cared??? More interesting, actually, is the location itself in Senatskaya Square, site of the unscuccessful 1825 aristocratic Decembrist Uprising.

Nice impressive location at night...especially with light snow falling! You will love the romantic walks with or without a partner.

It's great to see but there's not much to do here other than take pictures and buy souvenirs from street vendors.

An interesting monument near the Neva River in a delightful snow covered in January park full of trees. Noy far from the Hermitage and well worth a diversion.
