Field of Mars
An aerial view of the Field of Mars, a large park in central Saint Petersburg, Russia, pictured in 2016. It has an area of nearly 9 hectares (22 acres) and is named after Mars, the Roman god of war. The park's history goes back to the 18th century, when it was converted from bogland and named the Grand Meadow. Later, it was the setting for celebrations to mark Russia's victory over Sweden in the Great Northern War. Its next name, the Tsaritsyn Meadow, appears after the royal family commissioned Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli to build the Summer Palace for Empress Elizabeth. Towards the end of the 18th century, the park became a military drill ground, where monuments commemorating the victories of the Russian Army were erected and regular parades and military exercises took place. It became known as the Field of Mars during the reign of Paul I, becoming officially named such in 1805. After the February Revolution of 1917, the Field of Mars finally lost its significance as a military drill ground and became a memorial area, used to bury the revolution's honoured dead. In the summer of 1942, during World War II, it was completely covered with vegetable gardens to supply the besieged city, then known as Leningrad. An eternal flame was lit in the centre of the park in 1957, in memory of the victims of various wars and revolutions.Photograph credit: Andrew Shiva

Where I stand[edit]

I am a Disciplined Deletionist: there's room in this encyclopedia for an amazing amount of information, but the well-pruned tree grows the most gracefully. That said, I believe it is important not to delete information unilaterally, and I adhere to the policies shaped by the Wikipedia community at large.
