Wedged between Red Square and Manege Square in Moscow, the State Historical Museum of Russia was founded in 1872 by Ivan Zabelin, Aleksey Uvarov and several other Slavophiles interested in promoting Russian history and national self-awareness. The building has a Moscow Baroque style and houses relics of prehistoric tribes that lived on the territory of present-day Russia, priceless artworks acquired by members of the Romanov dynasty, and many others.
