«St. George Slaying the Dragon on Poklonnaya Hill»
The statue of St. George on a granite podium at the foot of 141.8 meter (465 feet) obelisk obelisk, which stands on the main square of the Victory Park on Poklonnaya Hill and symbolizes the 1418 days and nights of the Great Patriotic War. Riding on horseback, the fearless hero strikes the dragon (a symbol of evil) with a spear. The plot is associated with one of the many miracles of the saint. The miraculous appearance of George saved the princess and many other residents of the Lebanese mountains from death: he killed the dragon that ate people. For a long time George has been seen as the protector of Orthodox warriors in Russia. In addition, St. George is the symbol of the city of Moscow.
