It is right next to the Red Square and Alexandrovsky Park which is a great location. Also, there are good places to eat, sit and listen to live music close by!

This statue of Zhukov on horseback is vast in size and is situated just at the entrance to one end of Red Square. It is a very intricate piece of work and worth seeing.

Here, in the front of the State Historical Museum, on the opposite side of the Red Square, that is, on the Manezhnaya Ploshchad, stands a gorgeous monument to the Marshal of the Soviet Union, G.K.Zhukov. We saw many monuments in Moscow, during our stay and...More

This is a relatively new monument in Moscow.It would probably not have been erected in the time of the USSR as the politburo took a dim view of individuals stealing their limelight. Georgi Zhukov was a remarkable soldier even by world war 2 standards..He oversaw...More
