This monument is 200 years old this year! Created in 1818 by I.Martos, it has always been in the very centre of Moscow as the remembrance of people's love for Motherland, strength and will.

This is a decent enough monument, located just next to St. Basil's cathedral in Red Square. While the bronze monument is worth a closer look by itself, the magic happens when you take a photo of it with the famous cathedral in the back.

This is a nice enough bronze sculpture out the front of the St Basil's Cathedral. Of itself there's nothing particularly remarkable, but it does make for some nice pics with the cathedral in the background.
