I think that Russia has taken care of its historical buildings throughout every regime. Am I right?

Hi, Andy ! You asked a very significant question. Only 10-15 years ago people at out Top recognized that not only buildings of overnight stay of some political figures of our recent past could have historical worth. A simple warehouse built two centuries ago or a wind mill in countryside could be valuable and intersting for people of modern society as well. So, a lot of historical buildings were demolished before “Top mind” of different Russian regimes start changing. First of all many churches were demolished during a long period of religious persecutions. The same endless number of houses built in 17-19 centuries with unique architecture stile rural or urban, all over Russia were lost with no return. Fortunately, things are changing nowadays and we are on the way to preserve our national heritage for our successors. Cheers, Andrey.
