Palace of Alexey Mikhailovich to be restored in Kolomenskoe
The palace of czar Alexey Mikhailovich located on territory of museum-country estate "Kolomenskoe" will be totally reconstructed. This was announced during Saturday meeting by Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov.
"Archeological dig were conducted on museum-reserve territory with area 4 thousands sq. meters. As a result foundation of Alexeyr Mikhailovich palace was discovered", - noted Luzhkov.
By his words, foundation, unfortunately, is in very bad condition. Therefore prototype of palace will be mounted at other place as monument of Russian architecture.
"Palace will be restored in its original state on territory of reserve but not on its historical place because more than 170 century trees grew up on that place", - stressed Luzhkov.
He also noted that all guests of Kolomenskoe will have a unique opportunity to see apartments of royal family.
"City administration intend to restore historical view of museum and palace in order to return unique architectural and historical monument to Moscow citizens", - declared Luzhkov.
According to program of museum financing, 972.34 millions of rubles, including 475 millions from budget, will be given for reconstruction.
