Not many foreigners know that the most Northern location of Egyptian sphinxes is in St. Petersburg. Russian government have bought a few sphinxes from Egypt in 1820 and brought them to decorate shore banks of Neva river in St. Petersburg. This is probably the only place in the world where you can see each year Egyptian, 3500 thousand old sphinxes covered with snow.
By the way we had sometimes ago a story about the Inca and Maya monuments brought hundred years ago from America and now standing abandoned in one of the yards of St. Petersburg. You can see them here.
