Photographer's Note

The streets of St. Petersburg are decorated with several dozen statues of the most prominent people who have played their part in the development of the city and left their mark on its history and that of all mankind. Among them are great scientists, poets, writers, architects, statesmen, diplomats, soldiers, revolutionaries and explorers. Not all of them are Russian - St. Petersburg has always been a cosmopolitan city, and Germans, Italians, Frenchmen, Swedes and Britons, among others, have found fame in the city.
The Bronze Horseman, an impressive monument to the founder of St Petersburg, Peter the Great, stands on Senatskaia Ploschad' (Square)
