Some Moscow images

Supposedly Peter the Great but the statue was first done as Columbus and offered to various US cities who declined to buy it from the artist. So the face was changed and made into Peter the Great.

No-one seems to mind that he is wearing the uniform of a Spanish sailor.

A pond that was supposed to have been the inspiration for Swan Lake.

Lock up your daughters - a fortified convent.
