Emperor Peter the Great Monument (March 2014)

This monument to Emperor Peter the Great was unveiled in 1912 to mark the 200th anniversary of Peter the Great issuing his edict to establish an arms factory in Tula for the production of weapons. The statue stands outside the administration of the Tula Arsenal (known as TOZ after its Russian initialism), which was founded in response to Peter's edict.
