Blockade Bakery to be Preserved in St. Petersburg as Historical Monument

The building of the bakery that worked during the days of the Leningrad blockade has become a monument of regional value.
      The buildings of the plant constructed in the early 1930s in the style of constructivism are of value both as a historical and architectural monument.
      The original circle system of the bakery designed by the engineer G. P. Marsakov, made it possible to establish an enterprise of quite a big capacity in the limited floor space.
      Apart from that, a football match in blockaded Leningrad of spring 1942 will be set in bronze in St. Petersburg. The initiator of this idea is the Dynamo sports club. The new monument will be unveiled on May 31 to mark the 70th anniversary of the blockade match.
      The bronze sculpture represents two football players in football uniform of the pre-war style.
