The monument to the prince who brought Christianity to the Russian lands in the 10th century (official date 988 AC) was unveiled on 4 November 2016. The height of the bronze sculpture, from the bottom to the top of the cross is about 15 meters and together with the pedestal - about 17.5 meters. Pashov house was constructed on the top of Vagankovsky hill, not far from the western wall of the Moscow Kremlin, in 1784—1786 by a Muscovite nobleman, Pyotr Pashkov. It’s beautiful classical design has been attributed to the prominent Russian architect Vasily Bazhenov. In the present time, the Pashkov House is part of the complex of buildings of the Russian State Library.
