Fairly intricate monument and nice to see.
Sort of in the parking lot so access is easy access.
Not a destination by itself but if you are here it’s worth a quick picture.
Not much else to do dot this one is about 5 minutes.
Located between St. Isaac's and Mariinsky Palace, it's definitely worth a quick visit because it is so ornate and interesting. Unfortunately, the immediate area around it serves as a parking area for tour buses and various cars and taxis so any sort of ambiance is...More
Beautiful statue dedicated to Tsar Nicholas I. Statue was erected in 1859, and is unique because the horse is standing on only its 2 hind feet. Had to add a lot of extra weight in the tail for stability. Located near St. Isaac's Cathedral.

A monument to “pay respect and homage”’ to the despotic and absolutist Nicholas I. Close to neighbouring St. Isaac's Cathedral.
On one of the Saint Petersburg’s most beautiful and historic squares.
An impressive monument!
This statue of Russian famous ruler Nicholas I, is located on St. Isaac square in front of the Cathedral. It is a wonderful piece of art, and maybe the pedestal is even more impressive than the statue itself.
