River Floods 14th Century Architecture Monument

 The Spaso-Prilutsky Monastery has suffered damage due to spring high water in Vologda.


The architecture monument of the 14th century has found itself in the flooding zone of Vologda River. The southern wall of the monastery has been seriously inundated. The water has already made its way to the monastery’s land.

      Local dwellers don’t remember when River Vologda flooded so much as to reach the monastery in recent 20 years at least. The river has overflown so much that even the earth shaft failed to rescue monastic constructions.

      Two towers and a wall facing the river have been flooded; however the church and residential buildings have escaped damage so far. It is only when the water goes it will be possible to say if the flooded constructions need to be restored.
