Photographer's Note

This is a monument located in the edges of Moscow river, it is huge and was created to celebrate the 300 years of Russian Navy.It is 98 meters tall and was inaugurated in 1997.
Peter lived in a palace around Moscow when he was a boy and knew some Dutch who lived there and in the palace there was a big pound and he got a small sail boat and loved to sail there. This interaction with the Dutch and his love for the navigation can explain his idea to create a new city in the edge of the sea and create a navy for his country. At same time he hated Moscow, because he was almost killed there and because it was a very traditional community, centered in its own Russian tradition and he wanted to modernize Russia. If you know the actor David Niven the face of the czar was similar for me.
This monument was said to be the ugliest monument of the world when it was inaugurated. I don't think it is ugly, shows a huge boat with a huge czar in de rudder, the shapes of the boat are something tight. There are so ugly structures in the world people says they are marvelous..I liked this one, but it isn't a masterpiece.

Esse um monumento localizado 鄐 margens do rio Moscou, uma escultura enorme e foi feita para celebrar os 300 anos da marinha russa.O monumento tem 98 metros de altura e foi inaugurado em 1997.
O menino Pedro viveu num pal醕io nos arredores de Moscou, l havia um pequeno lago e v醨ios holandeses que o ensinaram a navegar e fizeram um veleiro para ele, onde ele passava horas. Surgiu da o seu amor pela navega玢o e sua ideia de erguer uma cidade nova na beira do mar e criar a marinha russa, modernizando seu pa韘. Ao mesmo tempo ele detestava Moscou porque quiseram mata-lo l e tamb閙 porque a cidade era centrada na tradi玢o russa e n鉶 queria mudan鏰s. Caso voc se lembre do rosto do ator David Niven poder ver como ele e o czar eram parecidos.
Esse monumento foi considerado certa vez como o mais feio do mundo, ele tem o formato de um barco com o czar no leme. O barco sem formato algo apertado, mas n鉶 acho que seja feio, no mundo existem estruturas terrivelmente feias que as pessoas adoram e eu de fato acho bacana o monumento, apesar de n鉶 ser uma obra prima.
