Wordless Wednesday Post

I know it's a Wordless Wednesday Post, but I just had to give this funny information about this particular statue. I made me remember it from a year ago!

The statue faces Saint Isaac's Cathedral, with the horse's posterior turned to the Mariinsky Palace of Nicholas's daughter, Grand Duchess Maria Nikolayevna of Russia. This was said to have caused the Grand Duchess considerable discomfort.
