Day 2:  Visiting another park and a palace

(St Petersburg has got lots of both of 'em)


They made you wear funny galoshes when walking inside the palace

Above 'n below pics of a statue recognising those Russians that gave their lives in WW2 - 26mil is the best guess

You got to look twice at this poor sod.  He's only got the front of a head and it hadn't seen the light of day until recently when it, sorry 'he', was unearthed in a land clearance.  Little wonder I was scratching my head in what, or who, he was and who carved him out of stone, for why and when?
