Any ideas why Nikola has choosed the copy of Vitali 1851 monument in Gatchina for Pavlovsk in 1872 and not placed an order for a new sculpture?

There are much more monuments in my native city I could even imagine. Thus I will have hard work to shot each of them ;D For those who is interested please look time to time at the first message of this topic. Also it is not easy to attribute each monument, the sources give different authors and dates.

Spasibo Vam Macedonsky.

What about a a series on poets and other literary figures, and then a series of medical and scientific personalities. Military statues are also well represented.

But please NO Lenins.

There are so many exciting themes to select in St. Petersburg!

Privet,

Actually, there were no many Lenin's monuments in St. Petersburg neither in Moscow.

I think that the  Peter the Great has majority in the number of monuments.

No, thanks. Romanovs would be enough. There are many web sites dedicated to other monuments. I am not professional photograph, just wanted to show my girlfriend some Romanovs. And found many unknown.

Pity! You take such nice photographs. Perhaps in the future you may re-consider?  ::)

Thanks for the link.
