On 12 June 1997, Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the fully restored in its original form, the globe theatre, on the stage which put his plays, William Shakespeare.
People’s desire to return sunk into Oblivion monuments of history cannot be stopped — most recently, the Italian government announced that it intends to completely renovate the famous Roman Coliseum.remembered more about the five buildings that have been restored, no matter what.
5. Restored Roman Villa in Roccamare. The British roots are known to all. Just enough time to come to Albion to see firsthand that people in the UK remember and honor its history. And not only his: in 2011 in a small town in the North West of England enthusiasts has been fully restored Roman Villa.
In his time this place was located a Fort occupying Roman troops, which were, to put it mildly, not too friendly to the local British population. However, for modern authorities, all this is common cultural heritage, which protects London, and supported at the official level.
4. The Church of St. Sophia in Kiev. The most ancient of the Orthodox churches in the post-Soviet prostranstve destroyed during the great Patriotic war. There is a version that is guilty of destruction of shrines retreating in haste and confusion of the Soviet troops in 1941, and not the Nazis, who despised all of them seized in the country, but first usually looted buildings, before laying the explosives under them.
Amazing looks the decision of the Soviet authorities immediately after the war to rebuild the Church, when there wasn’t enough money for anything. The Communist authorities were very sceptical to the idea of rebuilding religious structures destroyed during the war. However, Kiev and now adorns one of the most striking Orthodox cathedrals in the world.
3. The Koenigsberg Cathedral. World went fiery whirlwind, not only in the USSR but also in Germany itself. The ancient city of königsberg was wiped from the face of the earth. After the war the Soviet authorities were not too interested in the restoration of the symbols of the past greatness of the Teutonic town — a huge Gothic Cathedral was rebuilt from the new government.
The reconstruction was completed in 2002. It is noteworthy that this is the only inoperative the Cathedral with two existing chapels inside: Lutheran and Orthodox.
2. The bell tower of St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice. The Piazza San Marco in Venice is one of the main points of world history, European cultural treasure. In addition, she is from year one of the ten most beautiful squares in the world.
However, in 1902, for the whole city sounded very dangerous warning bell, which sounds the alarm bell — the soil of Venice in literal sense leaves from-under feet. Famous Bell tower of St. Mark collapsed, after standing before nearly 500 years. However, in 1912 the authorities of the Italian Kingdom trumpeted to the whole world that the tower was completely restored using the most modern materials that will allow her to “stand forever.”
1. Peterhof. Perhaps the most serious damage to the world cultural heritage was applied in the Soviet Baltic region: during the Second World war were completely destroyed real architectural diamonds — famous suburbs of Leningrad. Among them was the Peterhof.
Unfortunately, the front line for a long time took place for its wonderful parks and buildings, so that after final release there is nothing reminiscent of the bygone splendor. In addition, when the Nazis occupied the suburbs of Leningrad in 1941, they had stolen the famous Amber room (about her discovery of “the source wrote recently in this article ). Restoration work in Peterhof-Petrodvorets has continued to the present, although the main buildings in the Palace and Park ensemble has long been repaired.
