Tourists flock to Red Square, The Kremlin and Lenin’s Mausoleum and on the way to these amazing attractions they pass some massive Moscow monuments, probably even without a glance. These monuments are so endemic to the unique atmosphere and experience of the Russian capital and really shouldn’t be passed over. Here’s some of the greatest Moscow monuments to included in your sightseeing itinerary:-
1. Yuri Dolgoruky, Tverskaya Street
Largely considered the founder of Moscow, Yuri Dolgoruky has a far reach. Literally. The translation for Yuri Dolgoruky is “Yuri the long-armed,” and his reach is demonstrated by a right outstretched arm as he rides gallantly atop his steed. Though Moscow had already been established, Yuri pushed Moscow into capital territory, probably because he had a knack for developing cities, having traveled widely throughout Russia for years doing just that. Equally impressive, he was the Great Prince not once, but twice! Yuri’s monument is one of the most historically accurate of the Moscow monuments, depicting the finest details in both his armor and the weapon he holds.
