The Russians sure know how to make a statement about the wealth and power of their history. A huge space and it must be one of the largest squares in the world. Surrounded by beautiful neoclassical buildings in every direction and overlooked by the Winter Palace, this is a majestic place. With a lovely triumphal arch on one side and the excellent Alexander Column in the centre, this is macho Russian stuff on a grand scale. The Alexander Column is the tallest granite column in the world and was so well cut, that it stands without any attachment. At some 500 tons, it would take some moving. The square is a statement of the power and wealth of Russia and it does it very well. If you have the space, the vision and the cash, this is the way to build a square - simply superb.
