It is a reflection of this love of the Emperor that his mini-sculpture was installed on September 27, 2015 in Uzhgorod. This bronze sculpture depicts Peter the Great sitting astride a barrel of wine with grape groin in the hands. It is located at Voloshina 18, in the courtyard at the entrance to the tasting room “Chardonnay” (GPS: 48.623079, 22.299323).
Peter i-the first Emperor Of Russia, which turned the Moscow state into the Russian Empire, in every possible way limiting the Cossack liberties and political autonomy of Sloboda and left-Bank Ukraine. After the death of the last Hetman Ivan Skoropadsky forbade the Cossacks to elect a new one, eliminating the punishing Hetman Pavel polubotka.
He ruled Russia for 43 years. He was also called Peter the Great. This is not surprising, he was more than two meters tall. At the same time, the size of his feet was only 38, and he wore clothes in size 48. Its head was disproportionately small compared to its body length. He traveled a lot European. From there he brought skates, the concept of “left” and “right”, tulips and the most delicious Transcarpathian wine. He really managed to “cut through” the window to Europe, ” and everything that he liked, he immediately put into practice in his Empire.
He was very violent and had a black sense of humor. Yes, for example in 1714 in order to overcome drunkenness he ordered to award chronic alcoholics with medals for drunkenness who weighed more than 7 kilograms. They were worn by the “winner” drinking vodka at the police station. He couldn’t take it off himself. Poor piak had to wear this award proudly for a week.
Throughout his reign, he was at war with almost all the neighbors of the Russian Empire. He liked to deal with his enemies personally, torturing them and executing them with his own hands.
And what is the terrible Russian Emperor doing here in Uzhgorod?! He sits on a barrel and pours Transcarpathian wine, which he loved so much.
Here’s a career — from the Emperor down to the Butler.
