Inside the Kremlin

Ss Cyril and Methodius Monument

Ss Cyril and Methodius Monument (February 2012)

Also inside the kremlin is a statue of Ss Cyril and Methodius. Ss Cyril and Methodius were brothers from Byzantium who set out on a mission to convert the southern Slavs to Orthodoxy. In order to translate the Bible into the local language St Cyril invented an alphabet which would develop into the Cyrillic alphabet, the alphabet of modern Russian and other Slavic languages. This monument was unveiled in 2007 as part of a celebration dedicated to the Slavic Script Day and depicts Methodius holding the Bible and Cyril holding a copy of the Cyrillic alphabet.
