A few people know that just a few meters from the Kremlin near the Sofia Embarkment and behind the pompous buildings of the Russian Oil Giant, is a privately owned house. The house belongs to a one Mr. Victor Anatolevich Rozanov. One of Moscow's central home owners and the direct neighbour of the Kremlin.
Victor, a Professor with the Institute named after Baumann, is a 73 year old man who has lived in this house with his family since birth. He currently lives there with his wife. He briefly talks about his home, the history that sorrounds it, its odds among other twists and turns.
Victor, cheerful in his early seventies looks even younger. He says he has spent a better half of his life fighting for his home. The first attempt to evict him took place 40 years ago leaving him with a strong will for securing his home from intruders. He proudly says, "My house is my Castle."
A view of the Kremlin from his roof. You can tell the time of the day by looking at the Tower of the Saviour.
