Ruined Voskresenskiy Cathedral in the village Buregi

Voskresenskiy Cathedral Cathedral in the village Buregi. The cathedral was built in 1760, but in the thirties of the twentieth century, the Communists dropped from the domes and crosses. Major damage was also inflicted the cathedral during the Great Patriotic War. In the belfry of the Cathedral was a German firing point at which fired by liberators.

In the 70th year of the twentieth century, the cathedral was a warehouse of agricultural fertilizers. In the mid-80th years of the twentieth century, attempts were made to the restoration, but they stopped with the start of the Olympiad.

I should note that in spite of the collapsed walls and piles of bricks, there is very clean, no dirt, no trace of the fires, overnight homeless or graffiti on the walls. Amazingly well-preserved purity. Walls cracked internally be pretty scary, because is not known when the building collapsed. But on the walls of the traces of frescoes and paintings, and over the entrance still reads the text. Closer to the altar not to go - a huge crack in the wall facing collapse.

More About Russia

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.Check out what's happening north of Mongolia these days, in ChitaAlthough 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.
