Owner description: Moscow's Peter the Great monument definitely stands out at 322 feet of stainless steel, bronze, and copper and is housed less than a mile from the famous Kremlin wall. The monument, created by sculptor Zurab Tsereteli, depicts the Russian czar at the wheel of a ship with a document in his hands.

Walking along the river you can spot this long before you actually get there. It is a massive statue. It is well worth a look at while walking along the embankment.

We saw this big statue from boat cruise. It is huge and well done. Good for pics. Not sure if tourists can go inside.

I am glad that they decided to place this monument in Moscow and not in St Petersburg. It is so modern, conceptual and strange. It looks impressive and confusing. The best view point to this monument is from the embankment of the Muzeon art park.

After all the glitter and gold and pomp and pride this monument seems sort of funny. It is just so plain when compared with the rest of Moscow.
