There are some mysterious legends in Sankt-Petersburg. One of them connected with famous symbol of city — sculpture Bronze Horseman. This monument is dedicated to Peter the Great — first Russian emperor and founder new capital.
This monument was built by the order of Russian empress Ekaterina II. However, before this her son, future emperor Pavel, had seen ghost of Peter. That ghost had pointed the place, where this monument will be build. And had worried about future of his descendant — Pavel. Ghost had grounds for this. Because after a few years of domination, Pavel was killed.
You have another strong reason for seeing this ghost. I am sorry, monument. Bronze Horseman (in real he made from bronze) have face of real emperor.
