Our work done, we had more time to explore Saint Petersburg. This is a World War II memorial there. You may have noticed memorials to World War II (called the Great Patriotic War in Russia) are pretty common; about twenty million Soviet soldiers and civilians were killed in the war (13% of their population at the time; a little over 400,000 Americans were killed), so it is a big deal to them.
