Church on Spilled Blood will be restored till 2025

26 January 2018

This is reported by the Committee for State Control, Utilization and Protection of Historical and Cultural Landmarks. The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood will be gradually freed from scaffolding.

The first of them will be removed in the summer of 2018 before the World Cup Championship, which will take place also in St. Petersburg. However, many parts of the unique architectural structure will remain closed by the scaffolding.The fact of the matter is that the façade of the cathedral is in an emergency condition.  Tiles and construction elements are completely dilapidated. Recall, the last time the church has been restored for 23 years: from 1974 to 1997.
