A monument to citizen Kuzma Minin and Prince Dmitry Pozharsky was erected on Red Square on February 20, 1818 in honor of the victory of Russian militias over foreign invaders in 1612.
A competition was held at the Imperial Academy of Arts, in which the most prominent Russian sculptors and architects of the 19th century took part, but Ivan Petrovich Martos (1754–1835), whose project was recognized as the most successful, remained the leader.
The monument – a symbol of the struggle for national independence – is known in Russia and abroad, is one of the main visiting cards of the capital in our country.
In November 2020, it is planned to start a large-scale restoration of the monument with public donations.
Hotel “Maroseika 2/15” invites you to the Red Square to honor the memory of heroes.
