This massive column is in the centre of Palace Square so you cannot avoid seeing it. Erected in 1834, it claims to be the tallest, free-standing monument in the world.
You can't miss the Alexander Column when visiting Palace Square as it sits right in the middle of the square. It was raised after the Russian victory in the war with Napoleon's France. Worth a photo as it adds to the aesthetics of the square.
