The world famous St. Cyril-White Lake Monastery-museum, located in the Vologda Region, 360 miles north of Moscow, will receive 508 million ruble (more than $8 million) for restoration under the federal Culture of Russia program, reports Blagovest-Info.
The scope of the work is huge. It is the leading tourist site of the region, visited by more than 300,000 people annually. I hope that all the funds will help the museum become a leading excursion site for the whole Northern Necklace of Russia, Vologda Province Governor Oleg Kuvshinnikov said on Monday.
As explained by museum-reserve director Mikhail Sharomazov, the allocated funds will be used for the restoration of almost all the monasterys towers and the Church of the Archangel Gabriel, and for the construction of a hotel and restaurant on the territory of the museum. All works are planned to be completed by the end of the year.
Belozersk Tower will be an open storage for carved wood, and Vologda Tower an open storage for storing icons, the director said.
The ceilings in the southern part of the ancient Church of the Archangel Gabriel have already been restored, and works are now being carried out on the interior and on the facades.

I am thinking of what the late Lewis Grizzard said of Chicago. “It’s a city with two seasons, winter and the 4th of July.”
Our US Government tears down veterans war memorials which feature a cross, yet allows statutes of Satan in public parks.
This is the world turned upside down.
This is great.The Russians are a wonderful Christian people and we should embrace them. They have slaughtered the sunni isis muslim bastards by the 10’s of thousands in Syria and we should commend them. Go TRUMP!! Let us reunite with our Christian brothers and Sisters.
“360 miles north of Moscow. How long is the tourist season there? “
Probably about 4 months for non-Russians (i.e., people not used to the climate there), and 6 months for Russians. Plenty of time to visit for most people.
Year round for Russians.
Your brilliant four words perfectly explain why no western power has ever been able to conquer Russia.
That’s a big one!
Yes, but no African country has tried yet.
This is why trump is playing nice
Russia is christian these days.
You can’t be a true commie and Christian
Communism is death and godless at its core
Yeah, the Russians know what to do with muzzies.
Yes they do and They do!! We send in homos and women and do sex changes for mentally ill. You cant make that up!!
