About the sorry state of the monument says spbdnevnik.ru. Monument in St. Sampson garden was created by artist Mikhail Shemyakin and architect Vyacheslav Bukhaev. It consisted of stone arches, is decorated with a metal medallion with the image of Peter I and bas-reliefs in the form of medals of the era. Part of the monument also included a metal composition with a table, on which lay a plan of Petersburg, and chair. Paid for a monument to the now existing company "Soyuzkontrakt", opened it himself Sobchak, but on the balance of the city put a monument forgotten.

What happened next — predictable. Hunters for non-ferrous metals destroyed monument, brought down all the metal elements, completely stole the song with a table and a map. Initially, the police even found part of the stolen, but now from the monument remained only stone arch.

to take Away the monument "First builders of St. Petersburg vandals began 23 years ago, and today he is in a very ruined form.

It has long want to restore. Shemyakin and his Foundation are willing to help draft and shape of the medallions preserved. Money — $250 000 — also can be found. But prevent legal problems: the monument not owned by the city, was raised by private money and the government does not have the formal right to spend budgetary funds, until he is taken to the balance.
