“Cars gonna kill me”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Monument standing in the middle of a very wide junction.
The pedestrian lights did not help crossing the roads. Panicked and had to run across the road.
Just across the street is the st issacs cathedral, and all the attractions are nearby.

“Impressive monument, non pedestrian friendly area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

The monument is huge and you definitely won't miss it. Unfortunately if you're on foot, you might find a problem to navigate to it from side streets. There are cars and buses circling the St. Isaac's Square, so make sure to look where you're going.

There is nothing more amazing than the gifts of public art Russia brings to the world. Each visit brings new lessons in history and relevance.

“Worth a quick stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

This monument is worth a quick stop. Many tour busses. You may even get to see a Rasputin character telling stories at its base.

“Historical!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

He ruled with these words: "if the emperor has no more of mercy in his heart than he reveals in his policies, then I pity Russia; if on the other hand, his true sentiments are really superior to his acts, then I pity the emperor."

Location: 50 meters from the Angleterre Hotel in Bolshaya Morskaya ulitsa.
