The Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the Friedrich Engels Monument in Moscow. The monument to one of the founders of the Marxist teaching, a friend and ally of Karl Marx, was erected at the Kropotkinskaya metro station in 1976 and looks very fundamental. The 6-meter tall bronze figure of the German philosopher in a raincoat with hands folded on his chest is mounted on a granite pedestal. When the monument was erected in the Soviet period, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, of course, was not there: the old temple was blown up in 1931 to build a giant Palace of Soviets in its place. However, when the monument to Friedrich Engels was erected, he was looking not at the Palace of Soviets, but at the largest outdoor swimming pool in the USSR, which was built in 1958-1960 on the foundation of the unfinished Palace of Soviets. The gigantic swimming pool was closed in 1994 and the new temple of Christ the Savior was recreated only by 1999 as a conditional external copy of the historic cathedral. Today it is the largest cathedral of the Russian Orthodox Church. Exhibition photograph as part of the series of artist's personal photo exhibitions on contemporary Moscow in some European cities — in city galleries as well as Russian Centers for Culture and Science (Gdansk, Warsaw, Vienna, Luxembourg, Passau). A fine art photograph of Moscow.
