Now architects are working on the restoration project. The total area of the new cultural center will make 600 sq. m. There will be a film library, exhibition and conference halls, and a memorial part with the original interior of the 1930s-1960s in the cultural centre.

The house, where Arseny and Andrei Tarkovsky lived for several years, had been built in the 1870s. A cultural-museum complex with Tarkovskys’ memorial apartment and a cinema hall should have been founded in this building since long, but on June, 20th, 2004 Tarkovsky’s House was totally destroyed.
