Kozma Minin (the statue made in peasant clothes) is said to be from Nizhny originally, most probably born in Balakhna, a small town across the river and considered the national hero, recognized as such by many Russian tsars (the Romanovs) since in the time of trouble back in 1611 he kind of handled fundraising and organisation of voluntary troops to...

An iconic monument very relevant to the history of city, commemorating Minin and Pozharsky before their campaign to free Russia from Poles. It's a smaller version of the monument that can be found before the St. Basil's cathedral in Red Square, Moscow. This one dominates the public place it's in and many people take pictures in front of it. As... More

Unique monument - almost a copy in Moscow. Past him not to go, because he is on his way to the Kremlin. Not deprived of it to your attention - it is necessary to place in the collection of your travel photos.

go see it at night in summer - come from Pokrovskaya, along the Kremlin wall down to the monument. Amazing! One of the best cultural experiences in Russia. See it and maybe you will understand what is "Russian soul".
