This statue of Peter the great on a bronze horse is a very famous land marks in st Petersburg. The whole weight of the statue rests on hind leg of the horse. It's a tribute to Russian metallurgical skills.

This statue of Peter the Great is the most instantly recognizable symbol of St. Petersburg. The thunder stone under the bronze statue is said to be the largest ever moved by man.
