    Where are the people protecting their heritage? I mean everyone would like to blame politics, economy or government, blogs are dripping with accusation of oligarchs and corruption, but it’s people who make things done. Russians will be reborn and rise to their finest state of prosperity, cultural awakening, economical strength and technological and scientific renaissance ONLY if they protect their heritage! this should be a nationwide idea and strong movement. No revolutions and destruction, evolution and creating instead! get a will to survive.

    Looks like all that’s left to do is salvage some architectural details and demolish the place.

    Constructed in 1780, but when was it finally abandoned to vandals and nature? How many years of neglect is this the culmination of?
