  • Restoration is carried out in Vologda Kremlin

  • The builders will have to restore the main Water Gate of the Vologda Kremlin and three buttresses of the south wall.

    Now they have started to remove the old layer of paint and plaster. Then they will restore the brickwork and will paint the objects. 1,5 million roubles have been channeled from the regional budget for this work.

    “We want not just to restore the decorative coating, but also to strengthen the walls using paint and plaster. They help to protect the building from moisture and its further destruction”, explained Alexander Suvorov, director general of the Vologda State Museum-Preserve.

    The specialists plan to complete the work by late September. Besides, the museum employees have repaired a part of the roof of the St. Sophia Cathedral this year. They plan to file an application for financing of frescoes restoration. Such work was carried out almost 60 years ago and now it is necessary to restore the murals again.
