Peter the Great

Peter the Great

This photo of giant monument to Peter the Great I've made from my car on the way to Sparrow Hills during a driving tour with my client around downtown. The monument standing on a spit in the Moscow-River stands 94m high. It has the form of a pillar standing on a granite basis foundation that is crowned by a bronze boat, with the figure of Peter the Great growing out of it. The tsar holds a large scroll in his hand. The monument was unveiled during the celebrations of Moscow's 850th anniversary and was dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the Russian navy (September 5th, 1997).

Dear Arthur,
Thanks for the tour. It was a wonderful experience to go on the excursion from Moscow to Sergiev Posad to see the beautiful monastery of Trinity - St. Sergius.
Thanks for your helpful advice on photography, your photos are great. You are knowledgeable, cheerful, and a careful and curteous driver. Your casual friendly manner made us feel we were spending the day with a friend.
It is easy to see why the Tretyakov Gallery is considered one of the great art museums of the world.
Your help enabled us to have a better visit there.
