My Dear client from Brazil, Alysson Freire, is standing on Red Square in front of well-known St. Basil's Cathedral and monument to Minin and Pozharsky during exciting driving and walking tour "Moscow by Night".

St. Basil's Cathedral was built on Red Square in 1555-1561 under orders from Ivan the Terrible in honor of the Russian conquest of Kazan and the Kazan Khanate in 1552. Its unusual combination of onion domes with delightful array of swirling colors and intricate red brick towers attracts people from all over the world. In front of the church is placed on high pediment a bronze monument to citizen Kuzma Minin and prince Dmitry Pozharsky, the heroes from the Time of Troubles (beginning of 17th century), who gathered the all-Russian volunteer army and expelled the Poles from the Moscow city in 1612.
