Our website is dedicated to the issues of protection and preservation of the cultural heritage - that thin thread which connects us with the past generations.
The state of affairs we see nowadays in the field of heritage preservation is fairly contradictorily.
On one the hand, more and more legal regulations for settling the cultural values preservation are passed on the world level. The national legislations are improved as well.
On the other hand, the specific objects of cultural heritage - both in Russia and in Western Europe - every now and then find oneself under the threat of destruction. Thus, the controversial bridge construction in the Dresden area threatens to damage the unique cultural landscape "Dresden Elbe Valley", in St. Petersburg as a result of the skyscraper building the historical skyline might be deformed, and in Moscow the unique historical quarters are gradually disappearing.
What is it bound up with? Is it bound up with lack of sense of taste and sense of proportion or with the momentary ambitions of local political forces? However that may be, we will try to do our best to keep the thread that connects us with our past. We shall not give future generations the ground to be shocked by the heritage we left them.
