Ancient Vologda is Gradually Destroyed

This is the opinion of the authors of an open letter to the governor of the Vologda Region and the Mayor of Vologda.
      They also offer concrete measures on preservation of the citys wooden architecture.
      About three thousand people have already signed the petition. Among them there are architects, restorers, writers, photographers, and deputies. In their message they bring attention to the critical situation, which has developed recently with historical wooden architecture of Vologda and lack of real activities for its preservation.
      The tacit consent on its destruction leads to loss of a unique historical town, experts warn.
      The measures taken in recent years for preservation of Vologda as a historical and cultural center are not efficient. The number of restored houses is very small, the best monuments of wooden architecture are close to ruining, and the environment of the "historical" town starts to be made of insipid siding semi-antique models.
