Cyril and Methodious Monument

Saints Cyril and Methodius are two brothers born in Thessaloniki (Greece) in the 9th century. Famous for having evangelized pagan Slavonic people, they are considered as the founders of the Cyrillic alphabet. The creator of the monument dedicated to them is Viacheslav Klykov. He depicted them around a cross, holding the Holy Scriptures. On the basis of the monument unveiled on May 24, 1992, it reads “To the first Slavonic teachers, equal to apostles, Methodius and Cyril. Grateful Russia.”
