    The Monument to Peter the First from Inside and Above


    New Moscow administration thinks now whether to remove the monument to Peter the First by Zurab Tsereteli from the Strelka (the spit between the hands of Moscow river in the very downtown) or not. Several Russian cities (from the North) are ready to pick it up. It's not the most favorite monument for a lot of Muscovites, to say the truth it's ugly one. But it's a kind of the sign of new bourgeois city, Moscow of the new times. Now we can look at this giant sculpture from the new point. From inside and from above.

    These pictures are made by the 17 years old Moscow roofer Vitaly Raskalov and his team. They climbed to the top of the construction and shot some Moscow views from above. The general height of the monument to Peter the Great is 98 meters. Nobody except for construction workers ever could climb there.
