Catherine's tribute to Peter the Great who began Russia's march from regional to world power. The statue is impressive on it's own but atop the stone edifice it conveys the triumph and struggles of this great man.

Great statue on a nice little park(ish) square, right next to Neva embankment. Definitely worth of visit and couple of photos

This statue and others were great but for the full experience grab a snack and hang out near the monument and people watch for a while. The time spent will offer a better appreciation and feel for the space.
