Top of Romanovsky Obelisk at Sunset
Top of the Romanov’s (Romanovsky) monument, Double-headed Eagle and Griffin with Sword and Shield, in Alexander Garden in warm colors at summer sunset against the blue sky. The four-sided obelisk of Finnish granite crowned with a gilded double-headed eagle, a the main element of the coat of arms of the Russian Empire. At the top of the obelisk placed the coat of arms of the Romanov boyars — a Griffin with sword and shield. Below inscribed the names of the tsars and emperors of the Romanov dynasty from Mikhail Fyodorovich to Nicholas II (one the picture can be read in Russian only first names from the list, of tsar Michael and tsar Alexis).
