Russian star BMX rider Irek Rezaev raced on Tuesday, August 20, over the roofs and walls of ancient Kazan Kremlin.

To make it possible Rizaev built a skate park which blended in with the historical towers and churches.

Red Bull team said in a statement that the preparation video had taken over a year, which included obtaining necessary restrictions and figuring out the riding line Rizaev took.

In 2000 Kazan Kremlin was included in World Heritage Site list by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
