Riga gives Peter the Great monument to St.Petersburg.

According to vice governor Genadiy Tkachev, Riga will give Saint-Petersburg a copy of equestrian monument made by German sculptor in the 19 century. The original of this monument will stay in Riga, while the copy will be set at the confluence of Ohta and Neva. Here Peter the Great conquered the Swedish fortress Nyenskans.
