Since 1918 in a building of the former private residence of Rukavishnikov the Nizhniy Novgorod museum of local lore (now the Nizhniy Novgorod istoriko-architectural memorial estate) has taken place.
It is known that building of the former private residence of Rukavishnikov was conducted carefully, under personal control of the owner of manor.
However after nationalization of a building speech has come at once about repair.
1935 the next complex of restoration works of a private residence (at that point in time – already a museum) was spent. 1980th years works on restoration of sculptural and architectural elements of furniture of facades and interiors were annually spent. As they had local character, and on boundary XX-XXI of centuries in general have been stopped in the absence of financing, the main house has come to an emergency condition …
And here literally this autumn a building have fenced, and on private residence walls have stretched a banner simulating shape of a facade. Reconstruction has begun. Now front works from Verhnevolzhsky quay are finished (on a photo), and people can admire it fine an architecture monument.
С 1918 года в здании бывшего особняка Рукавишникова разместился Нижегородский краеведческий музей( в настоящее время Нижегородский историко-архитектурный музей-заповедник).
Известно, что строительство бывшего особняка Рукавишникова велось тщательно, под личным контролем владельца усадьбы.
Однако после национализации здания речь сразу же зашла о ремонте.
1935 году проводился очередной комплекс реставрационных работ особняка (на тот момент – уже музея). 1980-х годов ежегодно проводились работы по восстановлению скульптурных и архитектурных элементов убранства фасадов и интерьеров. Поскольку они носили локальный характер, а на рубеже XX-XXI столетий вообще были прекращены из-за отсутствия финансирования, главный дом пришёл в аварийное состояние…
И вот буквально этой осенью здание обнесли забором, а на стенах особняка растянули банер, имитирующий облик фасада. Началась реконструкция. Сейчас фасадные работы со стороны Верхневолжской набережной закончены (на фото), и нижегородцы могут любоваться этим прекрасный памятником архитектуры.

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!
Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.

Although you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.
Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).
The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.
Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers. They launched the earth's second satellite, called Sputnik 1, and were the first country to put a human being into orbit around earth. (The first one is called the Moon.)
After the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia became a federal republic of 83 states.
