It has a great location, is impressively massive and well-sculptured, and it really marks a significant landmark of history. Of course, it is just a sculpture, you don't drive hours just for this.

Yep, ALL of Russia's key historical figures are on this statue. See how many you know and what they did. Rurik starts the entire history, and cuts a strong presence on this statue.
