Monument to Saint Petersburg rain
Many tourists pay attention primarily to the sights of the city on the Neva, which are its characters: Alexander Column, “The Bronze Horseman”, sphinxes on the University Embankment, and others. However, sometimes you want to see something little-known, but interesting. Rain is one of the visiting cards of the city, like the famous London fog. In St. Petersburg, it is a half-fog hanging between heaven and earth all the autumn-spring period. But it creates a unique atmosphere of the city. The city of rains.
Monument to St. Petersburg rain appeared in the shopping center “Izmailovo Gostiny Dvor” six years ago. In the original monument there is nothing superfluous – a huge inverted umbrella of gray color turned upside down. It is cut exactly in the middle into two parts by the glass, which symbolizes the rain – on it, drop by drop, is constantly dripping water.
