Tour to Russia, this stop came to St. Petersburg, the bronze knight statue of Peter the Great on the southern bank of the Neva River, it is the symbol of St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1782, the French famous sculptor Falcone made his life's most perfect masterpiece here. The German woman, Catherine II, who took the throne by force, built the statue of the bronze knight Peter to prove that she was the legitimate heir of the great emperor Peter. The bronze statue's base is a 40-ton piece of granite found in the Gulf of Finland in St. Petersburg, with the inscription "Catherine the Great, Peter the Great, in the second century, in August 1782".
There are many sculptures of bronze knights in Russia, the most famous one is this one-Peter the Great in St. Petersburg! In 1782, the famous French sculptor Falcone created the most perfect masterpiece of his life here.
There are many very historic squares in St. Petersburg. There is often a statue in the center of the square. I have always had no resistance to statues of people, especially the leader riding on a horse. I really like it.
The statue was highly praise by the great Russian poet pushkin. Statue placed on a boulder, horse front leg lift, Peter sat in immediately, jiongjiongweishen eyes, visual ahead. Appreciate the statue from any direction, can be strongly felt its artistic charm.
The bronze knight statue of Peter the Great (Bronze Horseman) stands in the center of the December Party Square in St. Petersburg, Russia, also known as the Peter the Great Monument. Pushkin called the monument "the Bronze Knight" in his narrative poem, and since then "the Bronze Knight" has become a synonym for the monument to Peter the Great.
The iconic sculpture of St. Petersburg, also known as the Peter the Great Monument, is very powerful.
