Tsar Carpenter Monument

Here we see Peter as a completely different person. This is no longer a powerful autocrat on a rearing horse, but a craftsman in whose hands the case is arguing. According to historical evidence, Peter the Great combined both.

There is a short history associated with the monument. It is known that Peter went to Holland to study shipbuilding. The young king did not manage to remain incognito for a long time, so he had to return.

For its 200th anniversary, St. Petersburg received a gift from Emperor Nicholas II — two statues that were installed here, on the embankment opposite both pavilions of the Admiralty. One of them was called the “Tsar Carpenter”, and a copy of it was sent to Saardam, where Peter studied the craft. The second depicted the scene of Peter rescuing fishermen from Lakhta, which led him to a fatal illness and death.

Having overthrown the autocracy, the Bolsheviks destroyed these two monuments in 1919. However, at the end of the 20th century, Holland kindly presented Russia with a copy of its Saardam Carpenter Tsar, which is now owned by [the Admiralty] (https://kudago.com/spb/place/admiraltejstvo/).
