The Alexander Column has borne witness to many of Russia's most tumultuous historical events - from the rushing crowds of the October Revolution to the devastation of the starving masses during the Blockade of Leningrad. Today, the Column is a great place to witness youth culture in the City -- any given (snow-free) day, one will find groups of young skate boarders, rollerbladers and cyclists circling the column and the entire Palace Square.
