Minin and Pozharsky

Minin and Pozharsky

In the small garden outside St. Basil's Cathedral on Red Square stands the monument to Kozma Minin and Dmitri Pozharsky, the heroes of the national struggle for liberation against the Swedish and Polish invaders in 1610-1612. The statue was designed by the famous sculptor, Ivan Martos, and erected in 1818 as the city's first monumental sculpture.

Arthur, thank you for your patience as well flexibility in getting us to all the Orthodox sites we could fit in. The trip to the church supply stores (especially Sofrino's) was exciting for us and, hopefully, fun for you. Now you can take other Orthodox tourists to these hot spots for vestments, icons, and other Russian Orthodox "souvenirs". The St. Sergius Lavra was outstanding, as well as Christ the Saviour Cathedral and all the other "domes" . . . we enjoyed our time with you and will enjoy our photos for years to come. All the best.
