1.3 billion rubles were allocated for the restoration of the facade of the Peter and Paul Fortress

1 billion 300 million rubles were allocated for the restoration of the facade of the Peter and Paul Fortress in St. Petersburg, and they plan to start work within two months. According to Vladimir Kirillov, general director of the Museum of the History of St. Petersburg, which is in charge of the object, there is a lot of work to be done.

“In two years, we need to completely sort out the facade. Because those iron supports that were made back in the time of Catherine the Great have already rotted away, and no one knows when all this can collapse … This is what needs to be done now, and to make it stand for ages, newspaper quotes him “Petersburg Diary”.

At the same time, the restoration project already exists and has passed the state examination. Restoration is scheduled to start next January. According to Kirillov, it is important to make the stay of tourists on the territory as comfortable as possible during the work.

“Now it remains only to decide whether to start this work from the outside or the inside of the facade. But this is already a matter for specialists. Our task is to foresee everything in advance and make sure that the repair does not interfere with the flow of tourists, for whom staying in the fortress should be as comfortable as possible”, he concluded.
