Most Russian cities that we visited had a statue of Pushkin. In larger cities you may find quite a few. This statue in Pushkin Square is probably the most easily recognisable in Russia. Pushkin has dominated the square for over a century, and is one...More

Legendary poet here in Russia. Surrounded by a nice park. I seem to remember that this is not the original location but glad to see he is still so revered by the citizenry. Nice to have historically significant individual remembered without attachment to military or...More

This is another bronze statue to see whilst wandering around the streets of Moscow. Pushkinskaya ploschad is a very busy place with a lot of traffic and a metro station underneath (of the same name). The statue is nothing particularly remarkable and a short visit...More

This statue is located in the centre of Pushkin Square and hence one should just make a quick photo stop when visiting the square since this is a very celebrated poet in Russia.

Pushkin is very beloved by the people of Russia. The monument is usually adorned with flowers and is a very popular square in Moscow. If you visit in the spring or summer there are well maintained flower gardens for your viewing pleasure.
