Looks just like a monument, but it is interesting to hear the story around it. Established for the 1000ths birthday of Russia. On weekends once per day free of charge guided tour.

A grotesque entity, but every nation has its monuments in bad taste. If you enjoy this monstrosity, then you will probably also enjoy the horrendous monuments to Queen Victoria's reign in prominent places in London.

Given to the people of Norgorov as a gift from the Russian President on their millennium birthday after being founded in 864, this sculpture depicts famous Russian rulers, musicians and artists and a great image of the world.
