Saviour Zlatoverkhy Church in Tver to be Restored

The Saviour's Transfiguration Cathedral (aka Saviour Zlatoverkhy) blown up in 1935 will be restored in Tver.
      - The cathedral will be reconstructed in the way which is closest to the original - a source in the regional government pointed out. There are preserved photos and drafts of the church, as well as some of icons, and the cathedral gate is stored in the Moscow Museum of Architecture. The foundation is already planned to be laid in October 2012.
      The Svaiour's Transfiguration Cathedral (Saviour Zlatoverkhy) throughout several centuries was the symbol of Tver, the center of spiritual life of the Tver land. It was founded in 1285 by the blessed prince Mikhail of Tver. The cathedral became the first white-stone church built in Russia, and one of the largest ones.
      According to the decision of the Soviet authorities, the cathedral was blown up on April 4, 1935.
