¶ 6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 Our next days visit was to the old “Royal Palace”, on the opposite side of the small park (Lustgarten) from the Museum. At the entrance we pass between two colossal equestrian figures of the Horse tamer, in bronze, presented by the Emperor of Russia. Passing under the arched passage we enter a larger open court, in the centre of which stands a colossal Equestrian Group by Kiss of St. George and the Dragon, finely executed in bronze.
